How independent are today’s major in- 
dependent producers? Judging from re- 
cent developments, this question is 
hardly as contradictory as it sounds. The 
days when consistently successful indie 
disk producers made their talents avail- 
able to any number of record companies 
are coming to a close. Hardly a week 
goes by in the trade without an an- 
nouncement by a major label that it has 
associated itself with a producer in the 
formation of a new label. Earlier deals 
of this sort — with or without the birth of 
new labels — usually emphasized a non- 
exclusive feature of the arrangement, 
leaving, of course, the producer free to 
dispense his talents to those interested 
in his services. 


However, deals involving the creation 
of labels under the corporate umbrella 
of major record companies underscore a 
new landmark in indie producer com- 
mitments; all new acts developed by 
them are released on the newly-estab- 
lished label. It is true that they continue 
to record acts with whom they are suc- 
cessfully associated; but this does not 
alter the fact that from a here-on-in 
basis these indie producers have exclu- 
sive ties to their new business partners. 
And the trade has seen the ultimate in 
this relationship, that of an indie talent 
(Snuff Garrett) who moves into the 


singles A&R picture of the parent com- 
pany. 


One simple answer to why this is all 
taking place can well lie in the fact that 
many of the indie producing people may 
feel that they may have been spreading 
their talents too thin in terms of labels 
and the artists they record. A broader, 
more complex answer may be the total 
awareness of major record companies 
that the indie producer is where today’s 
action is and that his sounds and track 
record are where their directions lie. 
They may see the need to end relation- 
ships with these hitmakers on a helter- 
skelter basis and make them a part of 
their internal structure. Indie produc- 
ers, in turn, realize the benefits. Today’s 
big record companies have the inside 
track on film and TV exposure and, of 
course, offer a basic economic incen- 
tive: a great deal. 


Through an ironic source — the indie 
producer — many of the large record 
labels are returning to what amounts to 
a new concept of the internal A&R man. 
He is young and constantly taking the 
pulse of the great youth market out 
there — and more and more he is an- 
swering only to a single corporate entity.

Po/ke Raid New York Pressing Plant; 
Charge 3 With Making Bogas Records 


^EW YORK — A New York pressing 
i-)lant said to be manufacturing boot- 
j egged copies of RCA’s “Sound of 
i) dusic” soundtrack, among other pop- 
’ liar disks, was raided by police last 
Ved. (25). 

The plant. Grand Rex Pressing at 
12-10 42nd St. in Astoria, Queens, was 
n the process of turning out copies 
,f “The Sound of Music,” police said. 
■Arresting officers also said they un- 
overed 500 different labels and mas- 
I ers, including copies of “Happy To- 
gether” by the Turtles (White Whale) 
ind “Hypnotized” by Linda Jones 
Loma). Also, the police reported, men 
it the plant were in the process of 
lismantling two presses. 

Three men were arrested: Sortero 
^!an Miguel, Alverto Villafane and 
)rvaldo Perez Rivera. They will be 
barged with unauthorized duplication 
inder the Penal Code and General 
Business Law. They are scheduled to 
ippear in Criminal Court of Queens 
)n Dec. 12. 

General Crackdown 

The raid was part of a general in- 
f /estigation into the counterfeiting and 
Dirating of disks. It is being conducted 
ijy the District Attorney’s Office of 
^4ew York, under Frank Hogan, with 
assistance by John C. Fine, a criminal 
law investigator. 

Several weeks ago, a number of 
New York retailers were charged with 
either receiving and/or selling bogus 
'records. They included Lawrence Gut- 
I tenplan, charged with distributing a 
•‘“Best of 1967” pirated LP, Robert 
Friedman of Dayton’s Record Shop, 
Dave Eisenberg, Abe Jarmal of Capi- 
tol Records Shop, Santos & Emma 
Maldonado and Raymond Ratinetz. 

llFRONT COVER:

The Box Tops have grabbed the gold 
/•ring of success on the singles merry- 
: go-round with their first recording for 
' the Bell label, “The Letter.” The 
. Memphis quintet — all teenagers — has 
I earned an RIAA-certified gold record 
I'award for selling a million copies of 
Ijthe date, which stacks up as the best- 
'selling Bell singles release yet. Boys 
are now making the personal-appear- 
ance rounds, keeping up with their 
education thru private tutors. Their 
new single is called “Neon Rainbow” 
and along with “The Letter” is in- 
cluded in a rush LP, “The Box Tops.” 
The inset shows Larry Uttal, presi- 
ll dent of Bell (left), after he presented 
it Dan Penn, producer of “The Letter” 
(|!| (his first effort, by the way), with the 
cfRIAA award.

RIAA Support 

The Record Industry Association of 
America (RIAA), which has been 
working closely with law enforcement 
officials, through its exec, secretary, 
Henry Brief, said that the Queens 
raid was the “first step in an expand- 
ing drive to expose and bring to jus- 
tice” manufacturers, distributors and 
sellers (retailers) of bootlegged and 
pirated merchandise. Brief emphasized 
that both manufacturers and retailers 
of bogus disks would be prosecuted. 

The Queens raid was led by Inspec- 
tor Paul Vitrano, Sgt. Charles Gara- 
bedian and patrolmen Carmine Gel 
Galdo, Michael Cherumdolo, Eugene 
Collins and John Maida.

words of “gratitude” last week 
for its cooperation with the Rec- 
ord Industry Association of 
America (RIAA) and law en- 
forcement agencies in the cur- 
rent crackdown on manufactur- 
ers and sellers of unauthorized 
disks. Henry Brief, exec secre- 
tary of RIAA, praised Cash Box 
for “withholding news it had 
three weeks ago about various 
facets of the investigation, so as 
not to jeopardize the work then 
in progress and drive the boot- 
leggers underground.” 


LONDON — Ending its ties with Brit- 
ish Decca, RCA Great Britain will take 
over the manufacture and distribution 
of RCA Victor disk product in the 
United Kingdom and Eire, effective 
June 1, 1969. 

This development was announced in 
New York by Norman Racusin, vp and 
general manager of RCA, and con- 
firmed by Sir Edward Lewis, Decca 
chairman, at an annual shareholders 
meeting in London last Tues. (24). 
The RCA-Decca deal was initiated in 
1956; before that, EMI handled RCA 
in England. The U.K. subsidiary of the 
Radio Corporation of America ex- 
panded into recording operations in 
1966. 

In an official statement, RCA Great 
Britain Ltd. said it entered into a 
termination agreement with The Decca 
Record Company under which Decca 
will discontinue its distribution of the 
RCA Victor record catalog in the ILK. 
and Eire. 

Phase Out Period 

The record division of RCA GB will 
take over the manufacture and distri- 
bution of R(BA label in these areas. 
The agreement provides for a phase 
out period ending May 31, 1969, during 
which time Decca will manufacture 


and distribute RCA label records for 
the account of RCA GB. During this 
period, RCA GB will proceed with the 
establishment of its own record press- 
ing plant and distribution organiza- 
tion, as reported in Cash Box last 
week. These phase out arrangements 
will provide an orderly transition of 
the business from Decca to RCA GB 
starting June 1, 1969. The two com- 
panies will collaborate so as to ensure 
that dealers will be appropriately noti- 
fied of the changeover axTangements 
and be adequately supplied with RCA 
product. 

Some of the most notable disk suc- 
cesses from RCA in recent years have 
been “Mary’s Boy Child” by Harry 
Belafonte and “It’s Now Or Never” 
by Elvis Presley — two of the fastest 
selling singles in Britain. The label 
has also enjoyed considerable success 
via the late Jim Reeves and Sam Cooke 
and more recently The Monkees. In 
the LP field the soundtracks from 
“The Sound of Music” and “South 
Pacific” have both been million sellers. 

Global Facilities 

RCA presently has seven manufac- 
turing and distribution facilities out- 
side of the U.iS. They are located in 
Italy, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, 
Brazil, Chile and Australia.

NEW YORK — A multi-million dollar 
deal has brought into the Capitol 
Records operation a new label just 


Cameo Acquiring Allen Klein & Co. 


NEW YORK — Cameo-Parkway Re- 
cords will acquire Allen Klein & Co., 
the diversified show business com- 
pany, according to an agreement in 
principle announced late last week. 
Shortly after Klein purchased a 
majority share in Cameo-Parkway last 
summer, he raised the possibility of 
such a move. 

Allen Klein & Co. has annual 
revenues of $10 million, stemming 
from interests in management, films 
and music publishing. C-P, traded on 
the American Stock Exchange, had 
sales of almost $4 million in fiscal 
1967. 

The agreement, in principle, pro- 
vides that Cameo-Parkway will ac- 
quire the Klein companies, or assets 
thereof, for securities which may 
have a valuation of as much as $15,- 
000,000. 

The form of the Hansaction is yet 


to be determined by counsel and the 
companies, and the definitive consid- 
eration to be paid awaits independent 
evaluation of both firms, and an 
audit as of Sept. 30, 1967, of the Klein 
organization, which audit has com- 
menced. The agreement when entered 
into will be subject, among other 
consideration, to the affirmative vote 
of stockholders of both companies and 
a favorable ruling from the Internal 
Revenue Service. 

Varied Interests 

In announcing the arrangement, 
Klein and Harold Seider, exec vp of 
Cameo-Parkway, outlined the various 
interests of Allen Klein & Co. They 
include: ownership of exclusive rights 
for star singers and for sales of their 
records in the U.S. and Canada. The 
artists are The Rolling Stones, Her-

MGM To Handle Eggers' Poppy Records 


NEW YORK — Kev Eggers has formed 
Poppy Records through the Metro 
group of MGM Records. 

Move adds another label handled by 
the division, formed recently as part 
of MGM’s new “Community of Labels” 
concept. Metro, which is under the 
direction of Irv Stimmler, deals with 
indie label relationships and such 
MGM-owned operations as Cub and 
Music Factory. 

5 British Groups Inked 

Eggers, formerly associated with 
Lee Hazlewood’s LHI label, said the 
new company will also be marketed 
abroad by MGM, under the MGM/ 
Poppy banner. In lining up an artist 
roster, Eggers has brought in five 
British groups, including Them, which 
has had previous success here. Others 
are Maze, Outer Limits, the Gods and 
Shame. Latter attractions will kick- 
off the label with a single called “Too 
Old To Go Away Little Girl,” penned 
by Janis Ian. An American act inked 
to the new company is Lynn Castle. 
Eggers said that a release of four 
albums is set for Jan. 

Additional product plans, Eggers 
said, include the creation of a country 
music label (also thru MGM), the 
acquisitions of established names and 
soundtracks. 

In England, MGM/Poppy will be 
directed by Drew Harvey, with a pub- 
lishing affiliate there being established 


out of Freddy Bienstock’s Carlton 
Music. Name of the oufit is Harden 
Music. Eggers said that two American 
publishing houses, one cleared thru 
BMI, the other thru ASCAP, are in 
the works. 

Besides Poppy, Cub and Music Fac- 
toi-y, the Metro division handles the 
sales, marketing and promotion of 
Cameo /Parkway and its subsids. Van- 
do and Windv City. See photos on Pg. 
38. 

Fuhrman CM Of 
Blue Note 

NEW YORK — Mel Fuhrman has been 
appointed general manager of Blue 
Note Records, the jazz line affiliated 
with the Liberty label. Fuhrman pre- 
viously served as sales-promo manag- 
er of Sunset Records, Liberty’s budget- 
priced LP line. He joined the company 
in 1963 as assistant branch manager 
of Liberty’s New York distrib branch, 
and in the summer of 1966 was brought 
to the west coast for the Sunset post. 

Chancellor Re-Activated 

HOLLYWOOD — Bob Marcucci is re- 
activating' Chancellor Records, the 
label he successfully guided in the 
middle 50’s thru ABC Records. First 
release is Bobby Jason’s “Venus,” first 
a hit on Chancellor by Frankie Avalon. 


established by Koppelman-Rubin Asso- 
ciates, the indie producing complex. 

The new company, called Hot Biscuit 
Disk Co. establishes an exclusive ac- 
cess to all new acts to record under 
the Koppelman-Rubin banner, marking 
the first time that K-R have entered 
into such a relationship. The pair’s 
organization, however, will continue 
to cut such established names as the 
Lovin’ Spoonful, the Turtles, Gary 
Lewis, Pet Clark, Tim Hardin, Jackie 
DeShannon, Rick Nelson, Ted Neeley 
(on Capitol), Zalman Yanovsky, 
among others. 

Five Year Deal 

Under the five-year arrangement, 
said to involve an outlay of more than 
$1 million, Capitol will manufacture 
and distribute the Hot Biscuit line. 
K-R emphasize, however, that as own- 
ers of the label they will maintain 
full creative control of product and 
team their own ad-promo forces with 
those of Capitol. A decision will be 
made in the next few weeks with 
regard to initial Hot Biscuit sides. 
Johnny Bond is K-R’s promo director; 
Bruce Wendell will head Hot Biscuit 
activities on the west coast. 

Looking ahead, K-R visualize the 
formation of a budget-priced LP line. 
They feel they can venture into this 
area by picking-up older product. Es- 
tablished-name signings and master 
deals also figure in K-R’s blueprint for 
the company. 

EMI will market Hot Biscuit abroad, 
with the Hot Biscuit logo to be re- 
tained. 

Charity To Receive 
AAonterey Fest Profits 

HOLLYWOOD — It is the intention of 
the governors of the Monterey Pop 
Festival to allocate the profits of the 
musical festival, approximately $200,- 
000, to charitable causes. 

The governors met recently at singer 
John Phillips’ home here to agree upon 
the unpublicized dispersal of funds. 

Fifty thousand dollars was granted 
to a project to teach guitar to Negro 
children in the ghettoes of New York 
City. The project, which will begin 
shortly, will be administered by Paul

NEW YORK 

Scott McKenzie's Ode follow-up to 
his “San Francisco-Flowers In Your 
Hair" international powerhouse seems 
to be on its way towai’d doing the 
same thing-. “Like An Old Time 
Movie” is enjoying- all kinds of re- 
orders throughout all markets. 

Elekti-a’s rambling promotion man, 
Steve Harris, is set for a jaunt to the 
coast where Clear Light opens at the 
Fillmore. 

Steve Paul’s Scene was the scene of 
last week’s Pop Aristocracy Ball, 
which boasted all kinds of music biz 
notables in attendance. The affair was 


Buck Owens Show on the afternoon 
and evening of Nov. 12. In addition to 
Buck and the Buckaroos, the bill will 
include Kose Maddox, Wynn Stewart, 
and Tommy Collins. 

Bobby Vinton stopped at the Cash 
Box offices in the company of Pete 
Bennett for a short visit here last 
week. Bobby’s been very busy of 
late with pa’s and club gigs in addi- 
tion to his recording- interests. 

Audio Fidelity hosted a big bash 
at Mama Leone’s last week to intro- 
duce their “Carnevale At Mama 
Leone’s” album. 

Mounted Records has signed teen 
lark Lucie Donna, whose first deck is.

swingsters require some artificial 
stimulus of immediate effect. They 
find it in the cup and the weed. Mari- 
juana is cheaper than alcohol . . . the 
swingster will smoke his reefer so 
long as the demands of his job and 
material rewards remain incompatible 
with human physical resources.” 

Simon notes that the big bands re- 
ceived “surprisingly little sympathetic 
treatment from the national press 
. . . not all derogatory. Some was just 
stupid.’’ Though Simon’s approach is 
primarily reportorial, it is not always 
objective. L'nderstandably he cannot 
restrain his enthusiasm for what he 
considers “true musical creativity” or 



development and diction depts. Cur- 
rently she’s being- groomed and tested 
at Paramount Pictures with Hanna 
Baibera and Sunset Records’ con- 
ti-acts in the offing. Gw'yn is repped 
by the Charles Stern Agency on 
Sunset Blvd. in L.A. 

Gary LeMel, reunited with Randy 
Wood and now on Mira Records, has 
a third version of “Beautiful People” 
(cut by Bobby Vee on Liberty and 
Kenny O’Dell on White Whale) with 
the probable topside “One More 
Mountain” penned by LeMel and 
Libeity A&Il exec Tommy Oliver . . . 
“I’ve Got to Be Me” from the upcoming 
Steve Lawrence-Eydie Gorme show 



hosted by Epic, whose Kaleidoscope 
provided entertainment. The moon- 
goddess Nico is still holding nightly 
services at the club. 

Tal Farlow opened at the Prammis 
(64th & 2nd) last week with a special 
debut party. His style hasn’t lost a 
thing in his 10-12 yrs of retirement. 
He’s -without a doubt, one of the finest 
jazz guitarists on the scene today. 
The Frammis itself is a pretty groovy 
place featuring plush carpeting, gi-eat 
food, and the bar from the old Metro- 
politan Opera House. 

Procol Harum had a press gather- 
ing at the Cafe Au-Go-Go last Thurs. 
and the A&M people report that it 
was a gas. 

Mickey Wallach reports that the 
“Georgia Pines” single and the LP by 
the Candymen are getting extremely 
strong re-orders as is the Ray Charles 
“Yesterday” single, after only 3-days 
of release. Matty Humdinger Singer 
called from Philadelphia saying that 
the Ray Charles deck is the strongest 
he’s had since the long-while-back, 
“I Can’t Stop Loving You.” Mickey 
also noted that the “Kennedy Dream” 
LP by Oliver Nelson on Impulse is 
getting impressive response from col- 
lege radio stations (over 500 serviced.) 

Jerry Ross and Charlie Morrison of 
Merrec stopped by to talk about such 
decks as: “Lazy Day” by Spanky & 
Our Gang; Mr. Dream Merchant” by 
Jerry Butler; “I’m So Proud” by 
Keith; “Desiree” by the Left Banke; 
“Keep The Ball Rollin’ ” by Jay & 
the Techniques; “Watch The Flowers 
Grow” by the Four Seasons; and “The 
Look Of Love” by Dusty Springfield.

Eddy Arnold wings to London Feb.

Alouette Productions, comprising 
the home office for Kelli Ross and Art 
Wayne, has moved to new and larger 
offices, this time at 1650. The latest 
writer to be added to the Alouette 
staff is Autoharp player, Johnny Won- 
derling, known for his thoroughly re- 
worked Applachian Autoharp that 
features 20-odd chords and 3 electric 
pickups. 

Simon & Garfunkel played to a 
delighted house last week at the Em- 
mett Lake-founded Weekly Freakly 
held at the Village Theatre. Emmett 
is on the coast now doing some record 
production for Epic. 

The Village Theatre will hold the 


“Where, When, How”/‘Ttalian Bag- 
pipe Man.” Carlo Menotti is one of 
the writers of “Where, When, How.” 
The label is headed up by Billy Ver 
Planck. 

Gordon Bossin spent most of last 
week traveling around with the En- 
chanted Forest, a delightful femme 
quintet. 

Adventurous Peter Ray of the Rein- 
hold pubbery spent most of last Tues. 
eve. wandering around 9th and 10th 
Aves. in search of Dominic Sicillia’s 
Variety Child shop, the correct ad- 
dress of which is: 353 W. 48th St. 
(between 8th and 9th Aves.) on the 
4th floor. 

Charlie Greene in town this last 
weekend for his marriage to indie 
model Marci Davidson. The affair took 
place Sun. aftei-noon at the Plaza. 
They will continue to live on the coast. 

Tom Thacker, vice president of 
LHI, in town last week for talks with 
the ABC people on new releases for 
LHI under the deal with ABC. The 
first release under the agreement will 
be out in about a week and will be 
the Kitchen Cinq. 

HOLLYWOOD 

The golden age of the Big Band 
began its rise to glory halfway 
through the thirties with Benny 
Goodman’s historic engagement at the 
Palomar in L.A. and ended, almost a 
dozen years after, when eight of the 
nation’s top orchestras (Goodman’s 
included) disbanded in Dec. ’46. That 
rise, decline and fall has been chron- 
icled in an unabashedly nostalgic and 
marvelously documented book pub- 
lished this week by Macmillan. It’s 
called “The Big Bands,” a 537 page 
ode to the swing era by George T. 
Simon (with a foreword by Frank 
Sinatra) whose credentials include 16 
years as editor of Metronome Maga- 
zine. Much of the text culled from its 
pages, the book profiles (in depth) 
seventy-two of the top ranking out- 
fits — their hits, flops, pei'sonalities, 
performances, sidemen, vocalists and 
arrangers with biographies of more 
than 300 more ranging from Irving 
Aaronson’s Commanders (A) to hard 
drinking Detroiter Bob Zurke (Z). 
Also included, a couple of hundred 
photos integrated with the text, which 
add up to making this the most defini- 
tive document one can imagine on the 
big band movement. 

And, just to prove that the press 
hasn’t changed much in thirty years, 
there’s a quote from a N.Y. Times 
article written by Gama Gilbert in 
August, 1938 which, after suggesting 
that swing might be responsible for 
emotional unbalance, sexual excess 
and even rape, concludes with “many 


“integrity.” 

On the other hand the “Mickey 
Mouse” bands get their come-up- 
pance. Guy Lombardo is “a wonderful 
band to talk to.” And “the first time 
I had anything to do with Sammy 
Kaye was at three o’clock in the morn- 
ing in 1936 when he startled me and 
my entire family out of our sleep with 
a phone call. Sammy and I had never 
met, but somebody had told him that 
I knew of a good girl singer . , . 
such an inconsiderate attack on my 
di-eams could have prejudiced me for- 
ever against Kaye’s music. But it 
didn’t. It didn’t have to. Just listening 
to his band was enough.” 

Simon also notes that Hollywood 
treated dance bands with “consistant 
inaccuracy.” Gene Krupa in “Fire 
Ball” was reduced to drumming on a 
match box with match sticks, a -‘feat 
of phony phosphorescence. ” In Tommy 
Dorsey’s first film (“Las Vegas 
Nights”) the band was photographed 
with seven brass, five saxes and 
rhythm. But the soundtrack offered a 
full string section. And the scenario 
for “Dancing Co-Ed” assigned the 
following lines to Artie Shaw — 
“Greetings, swing cats and alligators, 
hi ya jive hounds. I’ll dig ya’ and I’ll 
plant ya’.” Shaw refused to utter 
them. But the substitute rhetoric, as 
we recall, wasn’t much of an im- 
provemenl:. 

Sinatra’s foreword is in the form 
of a letter addressed to “Joseph D. 
Oakes,” who was probably born when 
the “band era was just beginning to 
wilt.” Possibly on the theory that 
those who grew up in the 30’s would 
not have to be told how great the 
bands were, Sinatra writes, “maybe 
you didn’t even know there was a Rus- 
tic Cabin or a Paramount Theater; 
perhaps even the names of the Dor- 
seys are dim memories to you . . . 
don’t let your father swipe this book. 
I know he’ll find it as hard to nut 
down as you will; for him, though", it 
will be a well of nostalgia. For you 
and others like you, it will be an edu- 
cation.” 

A cover jacket quote from Johnny 
Carson reads “It’s the second best 
thing to having been there” — mag- 
nanimous if not entirely accurate. 
We’d guess that the second slot goes 
to the records themselves, those time- 
worn, steel-needle tabescent 78’s. “The 
Big Bands,” though, is decidedly in 
the money. 

Our “West Coast Girl of the Week” 
is Tulsa, Oklahoma’s radio and TV 
personality Gwyn Tilford who ar- 
rived here in June ’67 and has since 
cut a couple of motivation records, 
modeled for John Robert Powers, 
appeared in three dozen Tv commer- 
cials and on closed circuit TV, in- 
structing in the drama, personality 


“Golden Rainbow” has the stuff of 
which standards are made. Words and 
music by Walter Marks . . . Newest 
rock mag — out of San Francisco — is 
an eloquent addition to the music 
scene. Contributing editors — Ralph 
Gleason and Jann Wenner, former edi- 
tor of Ramparts — mag’s moniker 
“Rolling Stone.” 

Defunct — Hullabaloo, formerly the 
Moulin Rouge. May move to the for- 
mer Spectrum 2000 bistro — before 
that it was known as Giro’s. Hulla- 
baloo was once called Dave Hull’s 
Hullabaloo. It may soon be titled 
“Giro’s Hullabaloo.” Any questions? 


CHICAGO 

Had a nice visit with Kapp’s Greg 
Ballantyne who stopped by the CB

CiasliBcMK Record Reviews 


DiAlS--. <: o: ?RBIvIES (Motown 1116) 

Ir. i ir -•( .0 e (2:37) [Jobete, BMI-Holland, Dozier, Holland] 

i .v s', in Detroit sounds premieres on the bright new side from 
Diana Koss and the Supremes, a witty combination of orchestration and 
beat a la Motor City with the sweep and splendor of a folk-country ballad. 
The departure will stir up all pop followers of the team and kindle new 
excitement for anyone who ever bemoaned repetition in the trio’s style. 
Flip; “I Guess I’ll Always Love You” (2:43) [Same credits.] 


MONKEES (Colgems 1012) 

Daydream Believer (2:57) [Screen Gems-Columbia, BMI-Stewart] 

Fascinating arrangements that develop from a simple piano opening to 
a compelling ork ensemble and the hypnotic repitition of a very catchy re- 
frain highlight the latest outing from the Monkees. Excellent material 
and the unbeatable stylings of the best selling team work up a tremen- 
dous sales item with “Daydream Believer.” Jazz & rapid almost-skat de- 
livery on the flip: “Goin’ Down” (3:57) [Col-Screen Gems, BMI-Hilder- 
brand-Monkees] 


KAY CHARLES (ABC 11009) 

Yesterday (2:42) [Maclen, BMI-Lennon, McCartney] 

The spectacle of a Ray Charles performance gains significantly with 
choice material as is evident in his reading of “Yesterday.” The Lennon- 
McCartney ballad has never sounded quite as dramatic, and Charles has 
seldom been in such form as with this outing. Superbly orked and stun- 
ningly presented. Flip: “Never Had Enough Of Nothing Yet” (2:34) 
[Metric, BMI-Holiday] 


BOX TOPS (Mala 580) 

Neon Rainbow (2:59) [Earl Barton, BMI-Thompson] 

Look for the Box Tops to repeat their explosive hit pattern in outing 
#2. A change of pace from “The Letter,” the team’s newie is a lower- 
keyed mid-speed rock side with an easy-going rhythm that grows into a 
hypnotizing sales magnet. More exceptional vocal power and grand lyrical 
draw should set “Neon Rainbow” at the top. Expect big r&b response to 
the flip: “Everything I Am” (2:14) [Press, BMI-Penn, Oldham] 


SMOKEY ROBINSON & MIRACLES (Tamla 54159) 

I Second That Emotion (2:39) [Jobete, BMI-Robinson, Cleveland] 

Already making a solid move into the foreward section of the rhythm 
& blues spotlight, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles are headed for a 
big showing on the pop board via this electrically sparkling slow-mid- 
speed session. Outstanding lead and the well worked team sound shine 
on a tune that gains appeal with each new listen. Flip: “You Must Be 
Love” (2:34) [Jobete, BMI-Robinson, Moore] 


BEE GEES (Atco 6532) 

(The Lights Went Out In) Massachusetts (2:18) [Nemperor, BMI-Gibb, 
Gibb, Gibb] 

Even as “Holiday” registers strong gains nearing the top ten, the Bee 
Gees have a new one for the pop buyers. An English chart topper, “Mas- 
sachusetts” presents the team in a fairly new light with a splendidly ar- 
ranged ballad somewhat in the Scott McKenzie bag. Slow, smooth side 
with tremendous impact. Flip: “Sir Geoffrey Saved the World” (2:10) 
[Same credits] is a happy cutie. 


BOBBY VEE (Liberty 56009) 

Beautiful People (2:24) [Mirwood Antlers, BMI-Gist, Jr.] 

Stepping up the pace a bit, Bobby Vee follows his near-number-one 
“Grow Up” smash with a softly swinging winner in the mid-tempo bag. 
Pretty chant done in exceptional style sets this version of the tune up 
for widespread pop and good music exposure. Should make things easy 
for promo hands because the side speaks loudly for itself. Flip: “I May 
Be Gone” (2:10) [Saima, BMI-Velline] 


BYRDS (Columbia 44362) 

Goin’ Back (3:22) [Screen Gems-Columbia, BMI-Goffin, King] 

Soft, slow blues ballad material with combined folk and electronic frost- 
ing provides excellent material for the newest Byrds outing. The hit 
team puts sweet harmony into the vocal end and serves up the usual 
grade-A guitar sound that has trademarked them in the pop market. 
Flip: “Change Is Now” (3:17) [McHillby & Clarke, BMI-McGuinn, Hill- 
man] is another sparkler with extended instrumental break of special 
note.

Picks oi the Week 


JACK JONES (RCA Victor 9365) 

CARMEN McRAE & HERBIE MANN (Atlantic 2451) 

FERRANTE & TEICHER (United Artists 50228) 

Live For Life (“Vivre Pour Vivre”) [Unart, BMI-Gimbel, Lai] 

Three sparkling recordings of the glamorous theme from “Live For 
Life” mark the beginning of a probable deluge of versions in store for 
the brilliant selection from the composers of “A Man and a Woman.” | 
Jack Jones’ RCA Victor debut combines the sweeping vibrance of the 
selection with a trace of tenderness that should open pop and middle-of- | 
the road outlets. Ferrante & Teicher’s powerful performanc will steal j 
much of the spotlight though, coupling striking piano segments with a 
lusterous chorale section. In a completely different bag. Carmen McRae 
& Herbie Mann accent the rhythmic playfulness of the samba with an 
airy jazz rendering that stress the song’s wordplay and danceable 
nature. Times range from 2:43 to 2:45. 

HARPERS BIZARRE (Warner Brothers 7090) 

Chattanooga Choo Choo (2:30) [Leo Feist. ASCAP-Gordon, Warren] 

Back on the right track and gathering steam with a stock of vintage 
tunes. Harpers Bizarre looks like it has the ticket for another hitsville 
run via this updating of the “Chattanooga Choo Choo.” Coming off a 
revival of “Anything Goes,” the team makes the most of built-in rail- 
road sounds in combination with delightful harmony and counterpoint 
on the smash offering. Flip: “Hey, You In The Crowd” (2:10) [Temsco, 
BMI-Templeman, Scoppettone] 

AMERICAN BREED (Acta 811) 

Bend Me Shape Me (2:05) [Helios, BMI-English, Weiss] 

Hand-clap snap, bright and breezy brass and some stellar group chant- 
ing set the American Breed spinning shai'ply in the best seller line once 
more. The latest of the team’s fine efforts is “Bend Me, Shape Me,” a 
nearly-up-tempo throbber with lots of dance appeal and a fine prospect 
for pop programming. Should hit hard. Flip: “Mindrocker” (2:32) [4-Star, 
BMl-Colley, Colley] 


RAMSEY LEWIS (Cadet 5583) 

Soul Man (2:50) [East, Pronto, BMI-Porter, Hayes] 

With the Sam & Dave vocal of “Soul Man” near the best seller peak, 
Ramsey Lewis should find a paved road to hit status awaiting his newest b 
vehicle. The jazz blues reading features some “grand” piano sounds and 
all the splendid vitality of the song showcased delightfully. A number to 
put Lewis back in the big picture. Flip: “Struttin’ Lightly” (3:07) [Ram- i 
sel, BMI-Eaton] j 

4 

DEON JACKSON (Carla 2537) 1 

Ooh Baby (2:25) [Gaucho, McLaughlin, BMI-Barbary] ' 

Smooth vocal styling and a muffled orchestral beat with touches of ! 
Detroit add up to a breakaway r&b side from Deon Jackson. The single, ' 
“Ooh Baby” has a buoyancy and polished sound that has clicked for Deon , 
Jackson before on the pop front and could well put him back in the na- 
tional eye. Flip: “All On A Sunny Day” (2:35) [T.M., BMI-Adams] 


BRIAN HYLAND (Dot 17050) |. 

Apologize (2:28) [Stone Canyon, BMI-Griffin, Gordon] 

A trace of folk in the guitar backing, easybeat rock throb that builds 1 
toward the close of each verse and continues to swell as the deck devel- 
ops, and some very fine vocals from Brian Hyland should go a long way > 
in setting this side into the best selling picture. Excellent fare for teens, 
who should turn out in a big way for “Apologize.” Flip: “Words On 
Paper” (2:38) [Viva, Whitewood, BMI-Hyland] ■ ' 


BURT BACHARACH (A&M 888) 

Reach Out For Me (2:50) [Blue Seas, Jac, ASCAP-David, Bacharach] \ 

Noted composer Burt Bacharach should stir up considerable interest 
in the artist category with this exquisitely arranged and performed read- ' ’ 
ing of his once-Dionne Warwick hit “Reach Out For Me.” Brief vocal 
accompaniment and a smashing orchestral build make it a heavy candi- . 
date for good music and middle-of-the-pop-road airplay. Flip: “The Look ' ' 
Of Love” (2:31) [Colgems, BMI-David, Bacharach] i 


SANDPEBBLES (Calla 141) I 

Love Power (2:10) [Unbelievable, BMI-Vann] 

Having stirred up a bit of attention with their last effort, the Sand- ' 
pebbles look and sound like sure-fire breakout artists with this stunning 
session, “Love Power.” Unusual brass twist and some fine percussion F 
work are highlights on the wild production — and the team’s sensational 
vocal workout adds the extra punch to break the song wide open in pop 
and r&b listings. Flip: “Because Of Love” (2:50) [Same credits.] 


DUSTY SPRINGFIELD (Philips 40498) 

What’s It Gonna Be (2:11) [Rumbalero, Ragmar, BMI-Ragovoy, Shuman] 


Emotion tingling orchestral backdrop gives an extra heavy push to this 
outstanding effort from Dusty Springfield. “What’s It Gonna Be” has the 
hit sound from the very opening, and builds from there to an explosive 
climax. Back in the winning line with “Look Of Love,” the chantress will 
not have to wait for this one to develop. A smash. Flip: “Small Town 
Girl” (2:04) [Arch, ASCAP-Goland, Schroeder] 


MANHATTANS (Carnival 533) 

I Call It Love (2:10) [Sanavan, BMI-Bivins] 


batin sniooth vocals irom group and lead singers coupled with a nerve- 
tingling orchestral backdrop create a charged yet mellow mood on “I 
Call It Love” from the Manhattans. The team is headed into the spot- 
light once more with this unusual effort that packs plenty of r&b appeal 
and more than a modicum of pop potential. Flip: “Manhattan Stomp” 
(3:00) [Sanavan, BMI-Lovett, Evans]

Mscord Reviews 




COL-ISThY jOi'J .<> FiSti (Vanguard 35059) 

Janis (?.35) [Ji>yful vYisdom, BMI-McDonald] 

Singular musical styling’s and the peculiarly worded and delivered 
‘‘Janis” make up Country Joe’s new single, the follow up to “Not So Sweet 
Martha Lorraine.” With a giant west coast following and growing fan 
response in the east, this single could set the group and their smooth, 
humorous electric music sound up for excellent exposure. Instrumental 
flip-side version is a beautiful reading with possible good music slant. 


WES MONTGOMERY (A&M 883) 

Windy (2:20) [Almo, BMI-Friedman] 

The intimate jazz guitar artistry of Wes Montgomery has stirred up 
pop attention through his recent “A Day in the Life” LP. Pulled from 
that set, as a result of deejay requests, “Windy” should put Montgom- 
ery in the singles spotlight. His smooth drifting reading of the Associa- 
tion smash is a gentle treatment with pop-jazz and good music market 
prospects. Flip: “Watch What Happens” (3:17) [South Mountain, BMI- 
Legrand, Gimbel] 




Newcomer Picks 




KITTENS (Chess 2027) 

Ain’t No More Room (2:20) [Jalynne, BMI-Jackson, Smith] 

Up-tempo cutie with a smashing lead vocal to start things cooking 
and plenty of rock to stir the stew into a tasty morsel with smash written 
all over it. Hard hitting part-Detroit part-Chicago sound that will find 
little trouble in cashing in on blues and pop fronts. “Ain’t No More Room” 
has all the sound needed to score and a bit more too. Flip: “Hey Opera- 
tor” (2:32) [Jalynne, BMI-Butler, Davis] 


STANLEY MITCHELL (Dynamo 111) 

Quit Twistin’ My Arm (2:08) [Catalogue, Ala King, BMI-Wylie, Hester] 

Heavily accented blues rhythm and some overpowering sounds from 
Stanley Mitchell should ignite the hit spark for “Quit Twistin’ My Arm.” 
The deck packs a potent dance appeal and has more than just r&b at- 
tractiveness. Receptions should start things for the side in blues areas, 
but pop breakout is highly likely. Flip: “Get It Baby” (2:46) [Catalogue, 
Ala King, BMI-Wylie] 


BRIAN FOLEY (Kapp 861) 

Love Was Here Before The Stars (2:47) [Blue Seas, Jac, ASCAP-David, 
Bacharach] 

Discerning pop and good music listeners have found a peculiar attrac- 
tiveness in the off-beat Bacharach & David songbook, and this affinity 
joined with a special vocal quality of Brian Foley could set the chanter 
into the spotlight. “Love Was Here Before The Stars” requires several 
listens for its charms to sink in, but those listens should be forthcoming. 
Flip: “Love Me, Please Love Me” (2:51) [Southern, ASCAP-Sigman, 
Polnareff] 


RITES (Decca 32218) 

Hour Girl (2:47) [Duchess, Robin, BMI-Kerezman] 

Pop side with a smack of blues and some terrific impact imparted by 
the organ backing. Simple delivery carried off with strength, and a fine 
beat for slow or mid-speed dancing should set this one up for teen at- 
tendance. “Hour Girl” looks like a side that could well carry hit honors 
for the Rites. Flip: “Things” (1:55) [Same credits.] 


BRUCE CHANNEL (Mala 579) 

Mr. Bus Driver (1:55) [Earl Barton, BMI-Carson, Thompson] 

Message and atmosphere along the lines of “The Letter” could set 
things in motion for Bruce Channel via his up-tempo driver, “Mr. Bus 
Driver.” The infectious quality of the beat, some pleasant vocal sounds, 
a hearty r&b and big pop attractiveness and little pluses in the ork sup- 
port should score for the deck. Flip: “It’s Me” (2:15) [Belldale, BMI- 
Channel] 


ELECTRIC ELVES (MGM 13839) 

Hey Look Me Over (2:04) [Percom, BMI-Thaler] 

Forward going guitar licks, very fine vocal workouts and a happy up- 
tempo side could make a big name for the Electric Elves. The team’s 
showing has a giddy kind of appeal much akin to some Monkees tracks, 
and could show up with some of the best sellers’ sales style. Could break 
wide open. Flip: “It Pays To Advertise” (2:42) [Percom, BMI-Padavano] 


JAMES MOORE (Soft 1014) 

Feet (1:58) [LeBill, BMI-Dillard, Smith] 

Sharp punch in the rhythm section and a husky vocal sound that is 
geared to score with r&b listeners and should catch fire in the pop cen- 
ters through the great dance attractiveness of the tune. Look for James 
Moore to score across the board with “Feet.” Flip: “Cool” (2:06) is an 
instrumental along Bill Doggett lines. 




c 


Best Bets 



ROY HEAD (Mercury 72750) 

Got Down On Saturday (2:25) [Acuff- 
Rose, BMI-Newbury] This one is a 
potent blueser that could earn spins 
aplenty for Roy Head. Deserves a 
hearing. Flip: “Then The Grass Was 
Green” (2:23) [Earl Barton, BMI- 
Thompson] 


ROSS BAGDASARIAN (Liberty 
56004) 

Red Wine (2:24) [Monarch, ASCAP- 
Bagdasarian] Very pretty rock-rhyth- 
med, mid-east tinged instrumental 
outing packs a playful hit potential. 
Definite sleeper material with good 
music and middle-of-the-road pros- 
pects that could break pop. Flip: “The 
Walking Birds of Carnaby” (2:09) 
[Same credits] 


JERRY VALE (Columbia 44347) 
Love Me The Way I Love You (3:25) 
[Ritvale, ASCAP-Tobias] What A 
Wonderful World (2:36) [Valando, 
ASCAP-Weiss, Douglas] Two-sided 
good-music powerhouse from Jerry 
Vale. Both selections are melodic bal- 
lads with excellent programming and 
coin operator appeal. “Wonderful 
World” is the curi-ent Louis Arm- 
strong noise m.aker, and the other is 
a strong slow love song. 


GEORGE JACKSON (Mercury 72736) 
Tossin’ And Turnin’ (2:18) [Harvard, 
BMI-Adams, Rene] Fine r&b fare to 
be found on this hard-hitting revamp 
reading of “Tossin’ & Turnin’.” Plenty 
of drive in the orking and a solid 
vocal from George Jackson could 
jump into the pop picture too. Flip: 
“Kiss Me” (2:30) [We Three, BMI- 
Adams] 


AESOP’S FABLES (Atco 6523) 

Take A Step (2:30) [Pronto, BMI- 
Burgio] Still looking for that first 
really big side, the Aesop’s Fables 
take a big step forward with this 
newie. Side is a slow chunk of funk 
with a whiff of Young Rascals style. 
Could Come Alive. Flip: “What’s A 
Man To Do” (2:00) [Same credits] 


ERNIE HINES (U.S.A. 888) 

Thank You Baby (2:45) [World Int., 
Defaye, BMI-Hines, Thompson] Sin- 
cere, rhythmic tribute to a girl who 
stood by when the singer needed her 
most. Might catch on. Flip: “We’re 
Gonna Party” (2:45) [World Int., De- 
faye, BMI-Hines, Thompson] 




SWEET INSPIRATIONS (Atlantic ^ 
2449) 

Oh! What A Fool I’ve Been (2:36) 
[Press, BMI-Penn, Oldham, Carter] 
Heavy item for blues spinners, this 
deck should go a long way in open- 
ing doors to the Sweet Inspirations. 
Slow, gently building ballad with pop--<i - li 
rock potential. Could catch fire. Flip: id 
“Don’t Fight It” (2:25) [Cotillion, , 
East, BMI-Pickett, Cropper] 


i| 


ROOSEVELT GRIER (MGM 13840) 
Spanish Harlem (2:48) [Progressive, 
BMI-Lieber, Spector] Popular blues 
standard “Spanish Harlem” gets a. 
potent workout in this unusually han- 
dled treatment from gridiron ace 
Roosevelt Grier. Could attract con-, 
siderable interest in pop or r&b cen- 
ters. Flip: “I’m Living Good” (3:09) 
[Fame, BMI-Penn, Oldham] 


4 


' iT 


PEANUT BUTTER CONSPIRACY 
(Columbia 44356) ' 

Turn On A Friend (To The Good Life) 
(2:13) [Four Star, BMI-Brackett] 
Lyrical message could catch enough' 
eye-attention to have spinners turn 
on to this lively rock-out side. Pace 
picks up, so listen past the opening- 
passage. Excellent guitar work on the 
break. Flip: “Captain Sandwich” 
(2:10) [Four Star, BMI-Merrill] 


JOE CATO (Chess 2026) 7 

Save Our Love (2:25) [Chevis, BMI- 
Davis, Cato] Very fine vocal showing ■> 
from Joe Cato and a splendid ballad 
side with lilt could start as a break- 
away tune in r&b areas, and blossom 
into a pop favorite. A long shot with., 
strong possibility. Flip: “I’m So Glad” 
(2:24) [Chevis, BMI-Caston, Webber] 


EQUIPE 84 (Imperial 66266) 

29th September (2:25) [Battisti, Mo- 
gol, Scott] A best seller list topper 
from Italy, this unusual deck features 
some fascinating mixing and peculi- 
arly appealing wocal work for added 
attention. Out of the ordinary side 
which could develop into a strong 
sales effort. Flip: “Auschwitz” (3:38) 
[Lunero, Vandelli, Scott] 


i: 


SEEDS (Crescendo 398) 

The Wind Blows Your Hair (2:30) 
[Neil, Purple Bottle, BMI-Saxon, Bige- 
low] Look for the Seeds to make a 
big bid to get back into the pop spot-j j

The act is good visually as well as 
musically. "Magic People” was, of 
course, a highlight of their gig. 

The Jelferson Airplane is especially 
well known for its vocals but in this 


performance, there were none . . . 
or almost none (excluding their 
"White Rabbit” closer.) The perform- 
ance was strong, both visually and 
musically but it’s difficult to enjoy 
body music from the confines of an 
auditorium chair. The music was good, 
adventurous, and inventive, but we 
feel that it would have been more 
suitably directed toward the seething, 
milling masses of “Now” people that 
might be more readily found at a 
Fillmore, Cheetah, or Electric Circus. 

Any group lucky enough to have 
both Grace Slick and Marty Balin 
might do better to emphasize their 
talents more extensively. 


TAL FARLOW 


NEW YORK — Those New Yorkers in 
search of really good jazz can find it 
at what is now the city’s newest jazz 
room, “The Framniis.” The club, lo- 
cated at 64th St. & 2nd Ave., is fea- 
turing Tal Farlow (as backed by 
string bass and a piano) in an unlimi- 
ted engagement, the guitarist’s first 
since his untimely retirement a little 
over a decade ago. 

A truly outstanding musician. Far- 
low ranks with the greats. His guitar 
work is clear, incisive, and interesting 


as he changes back and forth from the 
driving complexity of lead to a gentle 
(and often unamplified) rhythm. Far- 
low makes frequent use of octave 
chording and often uses his thumb 
instead of a pick. His guitar is a Tal 
Farlow model Gibson, resembling at 
first that firm’s model L-1. 

Farlow is in the enviable position 
of being a guitar player’s guitar 
player whose music can be enjoyed 
by the most casual jazz fan. 


SIEGEL-SCHWALL BLUES BAND 


NEW YORK — The Siegel-Schwall 
Blues Band is currently holding forth 
at Fred Weintraub’s Bitter End. The 
group has brought the driving force of 
the (Dhicago-style Blues they know so 
well to the Village nitery. Their selec- 
tions are frequently culled from their 
latest Vanguard LP, “Say Siegel- 
Schwall.” 


Corky Siegel’s mouth harp wails 
out moaning, tormented Blues while 
Jim SchwalTs agonized guitar shrieks 
and jabs at a pulsing rhythm and 
sometimes obscure melody line. If 
you don’t like Blues, stay away. If 
you do like Blues, the Siegel-Schwall 
Blues Band serves up some of the best 
that you’re likely to find around town.

ABC Gets Show-Stopper 

NEW YORK — Currently gathering 
plaudits for her performance in 
Broadway’s new musical “Henry 
Sweet Henry,” Alice Playten has just 
been signed to an exclusive recording 
contract by ABC Records. 

The songstress portrays Kafritz in

critics as a show stopper and “toy- 
Merman” through her two songs in 
the play. 

Arrangements for the recording 
agreement were reached last week by 
Miss Playten’s manager Tom Korman, 
and Larry Newton, president of the 
diskery. A rush-recording session was 
held Friday (24) to cut a single fea- 
turing her vehicle, “Poor Little Per- 
son” with the “Henry Sweet Henry” 
title song. 

A New Yorker, Miss Playten has 
been working in David Merrick pro- 
ductions for the last seven years. She 
played Baby Louise in “Gypsy” at 
twelve. Bet in “Oliver” at fourteen, 
and was in “Hello Dolly” for three 
years as Ermengarde.

on top in the bidding for master rights 
to “Baby Jane,” a single from the Bal- 
lantraes which has aroused consider- 
able attention in the Memphis market.

IVABC - New York has unlocked 
“Clue-Key.” a variation of the old 
radio contest in which listeners looked 
for valuable prizes hidden by an out- 
let. In the WABC “Clue-Key” game, 
listeners hide any key in their apart- 
ment or home and the outlet attempts 
to find it. On October 23, WABC’s 
special “Agent 77” began traveling 
throughout the 18-county New York 
metropolitan area in a Carey Car’s 
Mini Limo visiting homes of listeners 
who submitted cards in the “Clue- 
Key” contest. If “Agent 77” is unable 
to guess the location of the key fol- 
lowing 7 clues, he awards the listener 
with an RCA Victor color TV set. 
“Agent 77” is giving away a color 
TV set every day for the six weeks 
of the contest. Homes throughout New 
York City, Long Island, Connecticut, 
New Jersey, and upper New York 
State are eligible for daily visits, Mon- 
day through Friday. WABC advertis- 
ing-promotion manager Andrew C. 
Erish has announced that the outlet’s 
agency, Steen/Eidel, has designed pro- 
motional material to support the con- 
test in major advertising media, in- 
cluding newspapers, TV spots, and bus 
and subway posters. WABC program 
director Rick Sklar has arranged for 
a special “Clue-Key” jingle to be 
recorded and produced in all radio 
announcements.

KNX-Hollywood is featuring a new 
sound, a sound of music and selected 
informative conversation integrated 
into the news-oriented format. The 
change - over began on October 16. 
Gone are all listener call-ins and open- 
line segments of programming, with 
the exception of those programs an- 
swering specific queries on selected 
topics. Commenting on the new sound, 
George Nicholaw, vice president of 
t’ne CBS Radio Division and general 
manager of KNX stated: “KNX Radio 
has the largest and most honored 
news bureau in the west and in addi- 
tion to our major morning, noon, and 
evening news blocks, we will now pre- 
sent our excellent news services within 
a framework of friendly informative 
conversation and music entertainment. 
We will no longer accept phone call- 
ins, except in specific cases, but will 
call-out to newsmakers of the day, 
to community organizations or events 
that provide the public with useful 
and needed information, and to per- 
sons and places of interest to lis- 
teners.” 

On October 16 through October 19, 
WLS - Chicago offered an unusual 
visual presentation with the theme, 
“WLS, Where Communication Is An 
Art,” to Chicago advertising execu- 
tives and clients. More than 200 rep- 
resentatives of the top agencies and 
companies in the city were said to 
have attended four luncheon-exhibi- 
tions at the Continental Plaza Hotel. 
The presentation blended striking 
color views of fine art with a sales 


message that stressed WLS’ high po- 
sition in the Chicago radio market. 
Each day, original lithographs by such 
artists as Picasso, Buffet, and Chagall 
were given to winners of drawings 
during each luncheon. Grand prize 
was an original oil painting by An- 
toine Blanchard. Welcoming guests at 
the luncheons were Gene Taylor, WLS 
vice president and general manager; 
Robert Alexander, the outlet’s gen- 
eral sales manager; and Frank Nardi, 
WLS’ director of advertising, promo- 
tion, and public relations. 

Albert S. Tedesco, president of Hen-

Alto saxist Lou Donaldson was 
born November 1, 1929, in Badin, 
North Carolina. His father was a 
preacher and a music teacher. His 
mother also was a musician, and it 
was through her that Donaldson 
gained his first formal knowledge of 
music. He took up the clarinet when ' 
he was fifteen, and he attended col- [ 
lege in Greensboro, N.C. It was dur- ' 
ing his years in the Navy, though, 
that he gained much of his musical | 
training. Returning to civilian life, he j 
moved to New York and got his first 
break when he attracted the attention ' 
of Alfred Lion of Blue Note Records. 
He began recording a long series of 
sessions, some under his own leader- 
ship, others with Art Blakey, Jimmy 1 
Smith, Milt Jackson, and Thelonious 
Monk. During this time, he appeared 
at numerous niteries, notably the Five 
Spot and the Half Note. Donaldson 
has continued to work successfully 
with various groups of his own. In 
September and October of 1965 he 
played a successful engagement at the 
Golden Circle in Stockholm. His cur- 
rent single, “Alligator Boo-Ga-Loo,” 
was recently on the charts.

H©ys« Tribute 
Tq Ray Charles 

WASHINGTON, _D.C.— A special res- 
olution made by the Honorable 
Charles S. Joelson of New Jersey 
made a commendation from the floor 
of the House of Representatives 
honoring Ray Charles on the singer’s 
20th anniversary in show business. 

The tribute was paid in recognition 
of the blind singer’s numerous char- 
itable and professional achievements 
and said, in part, “the pain of his 
early life and the hardships he has 
overcome are part of the Ray Charles 
sound. The term ‘soul singing’ seems 
to have been coined for him.” Many 
more years of satisfaction and solid 
accomplishments were wished for 
Charles. 

Currently engaged in a national 
college tour, Charles is appearing 
with his own 17 piece orchestra and 
the Raelets as well as organist, 
dancer-singer Billy Preston. The pre- 
sent series has already covered Car- 
negie Tech in Pittsburgh (20), Kent 
State Univ. at Kansas City (21), Van- 
couver (24), Alberta (26) and Seat- 
tle (28). 

This week’s dates include the Univ. 
of Santa Clara (31), Western Wash- 
ington College (Nov. 1), Pacific Lu- 
theran Univ. (2), Central Washington 
State College and Washington State 
Univ. (4). Upcoming bookings include 
Purdue (10-11), Univ. of Alabama 
(14), Mississippi State (15), Mon- 
mouth College (17) and the Salle 
Wilfred Pettetier in Montreal (18). 

During the tour, Charles will break 
to tape a “Kraft Music Hall” appear- 
ance, and he is booked into the Copac- 
abana in New York for a four-week 
stand at the close of November.

'Yellow Submarine' I 
Underway In London | 

NEW YORK — “Yellow Submarine,” ji 
the Beatles’ animated, full-length fea- l|| 
ture film, is now in production in Lon- ■; 
don for release by United Artists. The 
comedy is highlighted by 12 songs re- , ' 
corded by the live Beatles for the ani- t 
mated Beatles, including four new I' 
numbers, written for “Yellow Sub- f 
marine.” i. 

The most advanced techniques in 
animation are being used in “Yellow ^ 
Submarine.” The drawings, influenced ‘ 
by pop and psychedelic art, are styled L 
to set off the mod, “now” world of I 
the Beatles. 1 

The picture, a co-production of King 
Features and Subafilms, Ltd., is a mu- 
sical comedy about a chase and a res- 
cue and is based on an original idea \ 
by Lee Minoff. It was written by A1 i 
Brodax, Jack Mendelsohn and Erich | 
Segal. George Martin, the Beatles’ I 
recording manager, is musical director I 
of the picture. 

King Features is one of the largest 
suppliers of animated cartoon for TV 
in the United States. Its hits include | 
the Beatles series and Popeye. Suba- ; 
films. Ltd., is the company formed by 
the late Brian Epstein, which pro- „ 
duced “Fei-ry Cross The Mersey” and 7 ) 
all the clips of the Beatles songs. TV 1 
Cartoons, an English company which | 
made the original Beatles series re- | 
leased in the United States, is provid- t 
ing the production facilities. | 

The Beatles have long been fascinat- 
ed with the technique of animation and 
are keeping in constant touch with " 
the progress of the film and the ere- ij 
ation of their animated counterparts. 
They already have recorded the songs 
for the picture. :

! Success Noted In Test 
P in Of Sound Of Youth 

I NEW YORK — The Sound of Youth 
j Program, a project designed to find 
I ialent among America’s youth, is 
I using Flint, Michigan, as a test city 
to determine whether the program 
can be made a community youth 
program spearheaded by the Jaycees. 

Preliminary results are “astound- 
ing,” reports SYP exec Dee Bass, 
whose husband, arranger - composer 
Sid Bass has established SYP. 

The program, centering on talent 
contests, was outlined to a number 
of civic organizations called together 
by the Jaycees, including the Recre- 
ation and Park Board, the Industrial 
Mutual Association, the Mayor’s 
Committee on Youth Opportunity, 
the Urban League, the Police Dept., 
the Mott Foundation, the head of 
the school system and the musicians 
union. Flint Mayor McCree was also 
present. 

Fruits of this gathering are offers 
to keep schools open several evenings 
a week so that youngsters can re- 
hearse, to supply free instruments 
for poorer youngsters, to let police 
distribute entry blanks and to pro- 
vide union musicians to accompany 
and rehearse entrants. 

Local winners will work with the 
Parks and Recreation Dept, next 
summer in giving free concerts in 
problem areas and in involving other 
youngsters in the program. SYP ex- 
pects to run similar projects in 
other cities, leading to national win- 
ners.

j Opry as part of its November release. 
I The Grand Ole Opry, still the oldest 
I continuous show in radio, represents 
j the very pinnacle of success in the 
! country field — the equivalent of play- 
ing the Palace for a vaudevillian or 
Carnegie Hall for a classical artist. 

The Opry began in November 1925 
as “Barn Dance” on Radio Station 
WSM in Nashville. This program fol- 
lowed immediately after the NBC 
Music Appreciation Hour conducted 
by the distinguished conductor Dr. 
Walter Damrosch. One night, George 
D. Hay, who presided over the Barn 
Dance as the “Solemn Old Judge,” 
commented to the effect that, “For the 
past hour we have been listening to 
music taken largely for Grand Opera, 
but from now on we will present the 
“Grand Ole Opry!” Thus the Opry 
got its name. 

The two record set with a booklet 
enclosed containing biographical 
sketches of the artists in the album, 
includes tracks dating back to 1926 
with Ernest Stoneman’s rendition of 
“Stonewood Mountain” on up to Archie 
Campbell’s “The Cockfight,” cut in 
1966. Among the better known Nash- 
ville artists represented in this deluxe 
package are the Chet Atkins, Bobby 
Bare, the Browns, Skeeter Davis, 
George Hamilton IV, Sonny James, 
Pee Wee King, Roger Miller, Minnie 
Pearl, Boots Randolph, Jim Reeves, 
Hank Snow, and Dottie West, among 
some 40 artists represented. 


New Monkees Album 

NEW YORK — The release of the 
Monkees’ fourth Colgems album, 
“Pisces, Aquaries, Capricorn and Jones 
Ltd.”, was announced last week by 
RCA Victor, which manufactures and 
distributes the Colgems label. RCA 
began shipping the album to distrib- 
utors on Wednesday, Oct. 25. The 
Stereo 8 cartridge tape of the album 
was shipped at the same time. Along 
with the release of the album, a new 
single record, “Daydream Believer” 
b/w “Goin’ Down” by the Monkees 
was released this week. 

Since their disk debut in August 
1966, the Monkees have sold nearly 
10,000,000 albums and nearly 7,000,- 
000 singles in the U.S alone. These 
are net figures. 

The new album incorporates the 
names of the various astrological signs 
of the members of the group as well 
as that of Davy Jones, also in the 
group. Jones is also a Capricorn, hence 
the insertion of his name to fill out 
the title. 

The album was recorded in RCA 
Victor’s Music Center of the World in 
Hollywood following completion of 
their highly successful extensive tour 
of U.S. and British cities last summer. 
Based on initial orders, RIAA (Record 
Industi-y Association of America) cer- 
tification for a Gold Album is being 
requested, signifying over $1,000,000 
in sales. 


UA Releases Two 
Lionel Bart LP's 

NEW YORK — United Artists Records 
has released two albums, “The Heart 
Of Bart” and “A Handful Of Songs,” 
to honor the tenth anniversary as a 
songwriter of Lionel Bart, the British 
tunesmith. 

During the past decade, Bart has 
emerged as one of the most successful 
and prolific composers in the world. In 
addition to a long string of popular 
songs, he has been responsible for six 
shows including “Oliver”, now being 
filmed in London. 

Both new UA collections are musical 
tributes to the songs and shows of 
Lionel Bart. “The Heart Of Bart” is 
an instrumental tribute arranged and 
conducted by English musician, Johnny 
Harris. “A Handful Of Songs” is a 
vocal set featuring the Mike Sammes 
Singers, backed by Johnny Harris and 
his orchestra. Contained in the pair of 
programs are tunes from Bart’s stage 
productions, pop selections, and film 
music such as the Bart epic, “From

'New Math" Package 
Issued By Victor 

NEW YORK — An eight album series 
entitled “The New Math” has just 
been released by RCA Victor Records. 
“The New Math” is intended to serve 
as a guide to the new methods of 
teaching mathematics which have been 
introduced to the American education- 
al system in recent years. 

Announcement was made by Nor- 
man Racusin, division vice president 
and general manager, who said the 
series was representative of RCA Vic- 
tor’s trend toward audio-implementa- 
tion of curricular disciplines in the 
fields of education beyond music and 
language arts. 

“These eight albums bring master 
teachers to every home, every class- 
room ... to students and teachers alike 
. . . and most pai-ticularly to dis- 
traught parents who have been at sea 
since the new concepts in mathematics 
were introduced into the educational 
process.” 

The albums comprise narration and 
related texts and serve as a teacher 
resource, and, significantly, as a prim- 
er for parents. The approach is in- 
formal, yet deals comprehensively with 
structures and concepts which, in to- 
day’s classroom, precede skills. 

The series was co-authored by Dr. 
Lyle E. Mehlenbacher, Associate Dean 
of the University of Detroit Graduate 
School and nationally recognized for 
his professional achievements in the 
teaching of mathematics, and Profes- 
sor James F. Lanahan, of the Depart- 
ment of Mathematics of the University 


of Detroit. 

The course places emphasis on the 
abstract concepts which now are com- 
mon, even in primary grades, but 
which have left parents (and many 
teachers) a generation behind. 

Professor Lanahan also narrates the 
material in the albums. 

The albums in the series are titled: 
Vol. 1 — -“Sets, The Language of Math- 
ematics”; Vol. 2 — “Numbers and 
Their Properties”; Vol. 3 — “Arithme- 
tic Operations in the Set of Integers”; 
Vol. 4 — “Arithmetic Operations in the 
Set of Real Numbers”; Vol. 5 — - 
“Signed Numbers and Order Rela- 
tions”; Vol. 6 — “Systems of Numer- 
ation — Bases 10, 5, 2 and 12”; Vol. 7 
— “Mathematical Sentences — Solution 
Sets”; and Vol. 8 — “Geometrical Con- 
cepts.” 

The albums are available separately 
and as a complete set. Each album con- 
tains three full pages of text material 
precisely keyed to the recorded narra- 
tion. 


Reprise Inks Newman 

BURBANK, CALIF. — Randy Newman 
has been signed to a long-term exclu- 
sive recording contract for Reprise 
Records, Mike Maitland, president of 
Warner Bros.-Seven Arts Records has 
announced. 

Newman, up until now has been 
known primarily for his writing and 
arranging, and has been extremely in- 
fluential on the music scene in the 
United Kingdom. He has been respon- 
sible for three top records in England, 
one of which was a Gene Pitney smash. 
Several of his songs have been record- 
ed by the Animals in their various al- 
bums. In addition to his activity in the 
pop music field, he has done a consid- 
erable amount of scoring for TV and 
motion pictures. 

Commenting on the signing, Mait- 
land said “Rany Newman is one of the 
brightest young men of the ‘new breed’ 
of music men.”

tions.

in a dynamic, soulful style. The melodies include 
“In The Midnight Hour,” “Don’t Fight It,” 
“Everybody Needs Somebody To Love,” and. the

THE LETTER— NEON RAINBOW— Box Tops- 
Bell 6011 

The Box Tops offer this, their first LP, as a 
follow-up to their powerhouse. No. 1, smash 
single, “The Letter.” In addition to “The Letter” 
and “Neon Rainbow,” outstanding tracks include: 
“Break My Mind,” “She Knows How,” and 
“Gonna Find Somebody.” Judging from the 
popularity of the single, this set is likely to be a 
fast moving LP, saleswise. 


RAVI SHANKAR AT THE MONTEREY INTER- 
NATIONAL POP FESTIVAL— World Pacific WP 
1442/WPS 21442 

The brilliant artistry of sitarist Ravi Shankar 
is captured “live” at the Monterey International

are: “Raga Bhimpalasi,” “Tablo Solo In Ektal,” 
and “IDhun (Dadra And Fast Teental).” Alla 
Rakha plays the tabla and Kamala plays the

Pop Best Beis 


BE MY LOVE — Mel Carter— Liberty LRP 3530/ 
LST 7530 

Mel Carter renders an album of pop melodies in 
a rich, warm manner which should find favor with 
a great number of listeners. Included on the 
offerings are the title song, “Be My Love,” “I 
Look Into Your Eyes,” “It Could Happen To 
You,” and “For Once In My Life.” The LP shapes 
up as a real crowd-pleaser. 


1967 




THE RIDDLE OF TODAY— Nelson Riddle- 
Liberty LRP 3532/LST 7532 

Right up to date from the cover to the back, 
this set offers the powerful Nelson Riddle treat- 
ment to such new tunes as: “Goin’ Out Of My 
Head,” “Don’t Sleep In The Subway,” “Up, Up 
And Away,” “Hurt So Bad,” and “Sunshine 
Superman,” The package is a sure bet for strong 
airplay and sales appeal. 


EYDIE GORME’S GREATEST HITS— Columbia 
CL 2764/CS 9564 

Eydie Gorme delivers a selection of show tunes, 
ballads, and Latin numbers. Included on the set 
are “If He Walked Into My Life,” “What Did 
I Have That I Don’t Have?” “Blame It On The 
Bossa Nova,” and “Don’t Go To Strangers.” The 
artist sings with resonant richness, and the album 
should be popular with a wide listenership. 


PANDEMONIUM SHADOW SHOW— Nilsson— 
RCA Victor LPM/LSP 3874 

A talented young vocalist and songwriter, 
Nilsson displays his accomplishments to excellent 
advantage on this imaginative LP. Listen closely 
to “Ten Little Indians,” “Cuddly Toys,” “Without 
Her” and “It’s Been So Long” (all written by 
Nilsson). In fact, listen closely to the entire 
album. It could easily develop into a fast-moving 
item saleswise. 


FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD— Music 
from the Original Soundtrack — MGM lE/SlE- 
11 ST 

An album of music from the original sound- 
track of the film, “Far From The Madding 
Crowd,” starring Julie Christie, Terence Stamp, 
Peter Finch and Alan Bates. The score was com- 
posed by Richard Rodney Bennett. The music 
communicates all the beauty and violence of 
Thomas Hardy’s story, and the LP should catch 
the fancy of movie music buffs. 


ED SULLIVAN PRESENTS THE LAST TWO 
PEOPLE IN THE WORLD— Jerry Stiller & Anne 
Meara — Columbia CL 2742/CS 9542 

Ed Sullivan, who has presented Jerry Stiller 
and Anne Meara many times on his TV’er, now 
presents the pair on a delightful, warm and 
touching album of comedy. The vicissitudes of 
mixed marriage provide much of the humor on 
the disk. The LP serves as an appealing introduc- 
tion of the duo to those as yet unfamiliar with 
their comedy and it should become a favorite 
with the pair’s fans. 


FROM LULU . . . WITH LOVE— Parrot PA 
61016/PAS 71016 

Lulu follows up her number one chart single, 
“To Sir With Love,” with a powerhouse LP which 
should ride on the popularity of that smash. 
Featured on the disk are “Hei'e Comes The 
Night,” “Leave A Little Love,” “She Will Break 
Your Heart,” and “Tell Me Like It Is.” Should 
be plentiful chart action in store for this one. 


A TIME FOR LOVE— Bobby Hackett— Project 
3 PR 5016 SD 

Carnetist Bobby Hackett plays an album of 
pop melodies. Included on the LP are the title 
track, “A Time For Love,” “Wrap Your Troubles 
In Dreams,” “On The Street Where You Live,” 
and “You Stepped Out Of A Dream.” The artist’s 
tone is vibrantly rich and warm, and the set 
should score big with the middle-of-the-road 
trade.

Reviews 




Pop Best Beis 


THIS IS IT — Bob Newhart — Warner Bros. W/WS 
1717 

Comedian Bob Newhart here offers a witty, 
caustic album that should be very popular with 
fans of his irreverent brand of humor. The set 
contains six inventive and highly entertaining 
routines bearing such titles as “Prenatal Twins,” 
“Daddy Of All Hangovers,” and “Topless Clubs.” 
Newhart is I’eally in good form on this one. Give 
it a careful listen. 


JONATHAN KING OR THEN AGAIN . . .— 
Parrot PA 61013/PAS 71013 

Jonathan King has penned eleven of the twelve 
tunes on this album, and his writing is character- 
ized by grace and inventiveness. Included on the 
disk are “Everyone’s Gone To The Moon,” “Land 
Of The Golden Tree,” “Where The Bun Has 
Never Shone,” and “Keep Your Feet On The 
Ground.” This is a most satisfying package. 


UP WITH PEOPLE! IN HOLLYWOOD— Pace 
M/S 1102 

“Up With People” are recorded in Hollywood 
on this LP, with the Colwell Brothers, Linda 
Blackmore, and the three 150 voice “Up With 
People” casts. The music is refreshing and the 
beat is infectious, as the group performs such 
numbers as “Sing Out,” “Life Is Getting Better 
Every Day,” “Up With People,” and “Let The 
Rafters Ring.” There should be a big market for 
the youthful optimism offei’ed here. 


THIRD & MAIN — Jonathan & Leigh — Vanguard 
VRS 9257/VSD 79257 

Jonathan and Leigh perform a set of folk rock 
ditties in an intense, dramatic manner which is 
likely to appeal to folk music enthusiasts. In- 
cluded on the album are the title song, “Third 
And Main,” “Someday Baby,” “Summer Sor- 
row,” and “If The Earth Be Round.” The disk 
should be a fast-moving sales item. 


Jazz Picks 



BROUGHT BACK LIVE FROM P. J.’S— Eddie 
Cano & His Quintet — Dunhill D 50018 

Eddie Cano and his Quintet romp through a 
spirited selection of jazz sessions. The Quintet 
consists of Cano, piano; David Troncoso, bass; 
Eddie Talamantes, drums; Frank Gutierrez, per- 
cussion; and Max Garduno, congas. The sound is 
rhythmic and hard-driving, and the set should 
stir plenty of consumer reaction. 


LIVE AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD— Thad 
Jones & Mel Lewis — Solid State SS 18016 

Big band jazz sounds are the order of the day 
on this groovy set as Thad Jones (fluegelhorn) 
and Mel Lewis (drums) lead their “Jazz Orches- 
tra” through six powerpacked tracks including 
“Little Pixie,” “Don’t Git Sassy” (both numbers 
were composed and arranged by Jones), “Willow 
Tree” and “Samba Con Getchu.” Lots of good 
listening in this album. Should sell nicely. 


Classicai Picks

THE SUPERFINE DANDELION — Superfine 
Dandelion — Mainstream 56102/S-6102 

Here’s the Superfine Dandelion’s debut super- 
fine album, filled with all kinds of hardrock 
goodies. Among the more outstanding tracks nre. 
“Janies Tomb,” “Shameful Lady,” “Day And 
Night,” “Crazy Town,” and “People In ihe 
Street.” It’s free unencumbered music that should 
see plenty of play and lots of sales. 


FELICIA SANDERS LIVE— Special Editions— 
EM 101/ES 801 ^ 

Felicia Banders, an extremely versatile song-; 
stress who can sing fiery, zestful numbers and 
warm, soft ballads with equal skill, is spotlighted 1|, 
here in a performance which was recorded live**^ 
at the Bon Soir in New York. Among the num- 
bers on the set are “You’d Better Love Me, 
“Hello Dolly,” “Who Can I Turn To” and “Mi- 
lord.” Brilliant vocalizing by the lark could turn 
this LP into a big selling item.

YESTERDAY’S GONE— Montfort Mission— Re- 
prise R/RS 6269 

The Montfort Mission, four young Roman 
Catholic seminarians who live and work among 
the poor in St. Louis when they are not attending 
classes at St. Louis University, have come up 
with a powerful album of songs about poverty, 
peace and war and civil rights. Most of the 
numbers are folk standards ivith new lyrics by 
the boys themselves. Mary Travers of Peter, 
Paul & Mary, guest solos on “No More Silence.”. 
The set is very effective and could get a lot of 
attention. 


THE REAL McCOY — McCoy Tyner— Blue Note] 
BLP 4264/84264 

Pianist McCoy Tyner performs five jazz out- 


ings, all of which he composed. The numbers are 

“T>aooir»Yi 'ncinr’ia rion tPlTinl at.l OTl “FoUr Bv./ 


‘Passion Dance,” “Contemplation,” “Four BjvT 
Five,” “Search For Peace,” and “Blues On The | 
Corner.” Tyner is ably supported by Joe Hender-i 
son, tenor sax; Ron Carter, bass; and Elvin Jones,! 
drums. Tyner displays melodic inventiveness and l_, 
clarity of ideas, and the LP should find fast favorj 
with jazz aficianados. 


STORMY MONDAY BLUES— T-Bone Walker— J 
BluesWay BL/BLS 6008 

T-Bone Walker storms through ten blues efforts' j* 
in a hard-driving, emotional style which should] 
please blues fanciers. Included on the offering 
are the title tune, “Stormy Monday,” “Treat Me| 
Bo Low Down,” “I’m Gonna Stop This Nite Life, 
and “Every Night I Have To Cry.” The set] 
promises to be a real winner. 


THE FOUR SEASONS, OP. 8 Nos. 1-4— Gulli/ 
Angelicum Orchestra/Aldo Ceccato — Audio FideU 
ity FCS 50,032 

One of Vivaldi’s most popular compositions, 
“The Four Beasons” consists of four concerti,! 
each one depicting a season instrumentally. Aide ) 
Ceccato leads the Angelicum Orchestra through, 
a spirited and technically impeccable reading of| 
the piece on this album. Special mention should 
be given to the featured violinist. Franco Gulli, 
who does an excellent job. The set should become 
a sought-after item in classical circles.

Seabolt To Direct Nat" I 
Promo For Smash & Fontana 

CHICAGO — Jerry Seabolt has been 
named national promotion director of 
Mercury Records’ Smash and Fontana 
labels, it was announced last week by 
Irwin H. Steinberg, executive vice 
president of Mercury. 

Seabolt, 26, entered the record busi- 
ness in 1961 as the local promotion 
representative for All-State Distribu- 
tors in Chicago. He remained with All- 
State until 1963. 

After two years in a sales post out- 
side the record field, Seabolt returned 
to record promotion with Chicago’s 
M.S. Distributing, where he first con- 
centrated on R&B promotion and later 
handled general market promotion. In 
1966 he joined Bell Records as local 
promotion rep for the Chicago area, 
where he remained until two months 
ago when he came to Mercury in a 
similar capacity for the Mercury and 
Limelight labels. 

In his new post Seabolt will report 
to Rory Bourke, product manager of 
Smash and Fontana. Bourke, Seabolt’s 
predecessor in the promotion slot, also 
initially joined the company as a local 
rep in Cleveland, as did Alan Mink, 
formerly Smash national promotion 
director and now product manager for 
the Mercury and Limelight labels. 


ABC Signs Greg Morris 

LOS ANGELES — ABC Records has 
just signed Greg Morris, co-star of 
CBS-TV’s “Mission: Impossible,’’ to a 
three year recording contract. 

Morris’ first ABC disk will be an 
album containing four musical and 
eight talking tracks. 

Bob Thiele will A&R the LP in

_ ;;.ple vnFild 
. .;i>le 20 years 

• :..y.,' a good many 

^ from Ihe old school — 

i a e c.-iii-essed concern over the bur- 
roning growth rate of convention 
crowds. The feeling of this faction is 
that the growth rate is directly pro- 
portionate with the loss of the indi- 
viduality and identification that pre- 
vailed in the past. It is argued, and 
with justification, that country music 
has its basis in the personal touch. 
That the whole image of the business 
is in its down-home, common-man ap- 
proach. True enough! And true also 
is the fact that, as the convention 
grows in size, the person-to-person 
atmosphere diminishes. 

But, on the other hand, it must be 
remembered that, as the convention 
grows in size, it also grows in stature 
— as the focal point of one of the 
most rapidly growing areas of the 
music business. More and more people 
and businesses who have been success- 
ful in other facets of the entertain- 
ment world are turning toward coun- 
try music as a fertile market in which 
to invest time and money. This kind 
of interest comes only as a result of 
the growth chart which country music 
has displayed over the past few years. 
Growth produces interest, interest 
prompts investment, investment brings 
about exposure and exposure leads to 
further growth. The cycle spirals ever 
upwards in ever widening patterns. 

It should be realized that there is 
no such animal as well-publicized se- 
clusion. The old either-or theory of 
having one’s cake and eating it, too, 
must be applied here. Country music 
can either be a private, isolated en- 
tity with limited enrollment opportu- 
nities — and thus enjoy limited expo- 
sure and dollar growTh — or it can be 
an open house business, unlocking its 
doors to new talents and new areas 
of promotion and publicity. The latter 
choice by its very nature brings about 
changes that will prove unpopular 
with a good many individualists. 

That story is an old one. How many 
times do we hear about the “good old 
days” when the world moved at a 
slower and more leisurely pace? When 
a man could enjoy a .5c beer, visit the 
nickelodeon, ride in horse-drawn car- 
riages or do any one of the thousand 
or more things which are probably 
far more appealing in retrospect than 
they ever were during their hey-day? 
Who can truly recall more enjoyment 
in hand-washing clothes and dishes 
than in allowing machines to perform 
the same function — with greater effi- 
ciency. And who would prefer the 
dim, yellow electric bulb to the flou- 
rescent lights of the present? Or the 
scratchy Edison cylinders and the 
hand-cranked turntables to the woof-

NEW HIT RELEASE 

JOHNNY WRIGHT'S 


“MUSIC TO 
CRY BY” 


• of today’s stereo 

• can provide beautiful 
= ■ > ; that’s the most substan- 

:hat it can provide. It can, 
F . -C, prove to be a harmful pas- 

Ahen overworked it has the 
A.-lity to close the doors of the mind 
to the present and the future. And to 
constantly attempt the rebuilding of 
the frayed and decaying boundary 
lines that have long since been re- 
arranged. 

This is not to say that progress has 
a built-in 99 44/100% purity. It is 
meant as a reminder to those who 
unthinkingly have become concerned 
over the attention which the conven- 
tion has received. And to those who 
may object to such new institutions as 
the CMA Awards program, and the 
manner in which the program was 
presented. 

Before objections are launched 
against these and the myriad other 
details of the convention that are open 
to criticism, those objections should 
be weighed against the plus factors 
to be afforded by such details. And 
when the balance sheet is completed, 
and the positives have been given 
equal time with the negatives, per- 
haps there will emerge a clearer set 
of values for all concerned. 



GRAND OLE SPECTACULAR— One 
of the high points of the 1967 Deejay 
Convention in Nashville was the WSM 
Grand Ole Opry Breakfast Spectacu- 
lar, featuring dozens of the biggest 
names in country music. The scene of 
the breakfast was at the Municipal 
Auditorium (above), which was jam- 
med with an audience of 2200 persons 
for the event. Acting as master of 
ceremonies was an Opry favorite. Por- 
ter Wagoner (bottom photo), backed 
up by the Wagon Masters. 


In our opinion . . . Nashville seemed 
far less crowded this year, despite 
the fact that there were over 1,000 
more registrees than were on hand 
last year. Nice work on the part of 
the planning committee . . . The first 
CMA awards show went off very 
smoothly, with only minor adjust- 
ments to be made. How it appealed 
to the Mark Goodson-Bill Toddman 
scout sent down as an observer won’t 
be known for a while yet . . . The top 
conversation piece to come out of 
the RCA Victor breakfast was spark- 
ling Lynn Anderson ... It would 
have been difficult to beat the choices 
of nominees to the CMA Hall of Fame 
. . . Bobbie Gentry went over like 
gangbusters at the Capitol party . . . 
Deejays could be provided with dif- 
ferent colored badges from everyone 
else in order to make them more eas- 
ily identifiable to artists, label reps, 
etc. . . . Seating arrangements at the 
CMA banquet should be given more 



HAPPY FACES ALL— At gala cere- 
monies held Oct. 19 in the Bellmead 
Country Club near Nashville, Broad- 
cast Music, Inc. (BMI) gave out its 
1967 Country Music Awards. Pictured

Davis Donates Chair 
To Country Museum 

NASHVILLE — Jimmie Davis, former 
governor of Louisiana, has donated 
the chair he’d used while in office to 
the Country Music Hall of Fame and 
Museum. The handsome chair, with 
the brass plaque on its frame which ( 
attests it was Davis’ during his two i 
terms in office, 1944-1948 and 1960- ■ 
1964, is placed on the “porch” that ; 
surrounds the country store display 
cases in the Museum’s artifacts room. 

Beside it is a manikin wearing the 
fringed suede jacket, yellow pants, 
fancy boots, and western hat that 
had belonged to the late Jim Reeves. 
Davis had specifically requested that 
the chair be put where Hall of Fame 
visitors could “try it on for size,” if 
they wanted to.

Callagher Salutes 'Nashville Sound' 
In Address Before Nashville Kiwanis 


NASHVILLE — “Today’s music world 
would be vastly different and decided- 
ly less colorful and profitable if it 
weren’t for the wonderful music that 
originates in your fair city.” 

These were the words of Bill Gal- 
lagher, Columbia Records A&R and 
special products vp, in an address here 
during Country Music Week to the 
Kiwanis Club of Nashville. 

$75 Million Industry 

Gallagher noted that the “Nashville 
Sound” had become the center of a 
“burgeoning $75 million a year in- 
dustry,” with country music enjoying 
“a sizeable share of our industry’s 
album sales” and a growing share of 
market in singles. He said that accu- 
rate date on share of market for coun- 
try music is hard “to come by these 
days because it’s impossible to dif- 
ferentiate between popular music and 
country music . . .” 

National Radio Exposure 

The international acceptance of 
country music, the exec stated, was a 
long way from 1925 when radio sta- 
tion WSM-Nashville began to em- 
phasize the sounds of Nashville. From 
the launching pad of WSM’s “Grand 
Ole Opry,” the nation’s country radio 
stations have grown to 328 full-time 
country stations and 1708 part-time 
outlets. Within the past five years, 
according to Gallagher, country radio 


stations have quadrupled in number. 
He noted that new country music sta- 
tions in New York (WJRZ), Los An- 
geles (KFOX) and Chicago (WJJD) 
had become ranking stations in their 
areas through the Nashville Sound. 

Gallagher also noted the invasion of 
country music acts into all entertain- 
ment media, including records, night- 
clubs, concerts, motion pictures, radio 
and TV. 

Columbia’s Faith 

Gallagher said that Columbia Rec- 
ords has evidenced its faith in Nash- 
ville’s music future with its million- 
dollar recording complex on Music 
City Boulevard. Columbia first became 
associated with country music in the 
early 20’s, with its first substantial 
steps undertaken, ironically, by two 
native Englishmen who later became 
American citizens: talent scout Art 
Satherley and his successor, the now 
retired 41 year veteran A&R producer, 
Don Law. Law himself was succeeded 
in Jan. of this year by Bob Johnston. 

Gallagher also cited the influences 
of country music in the general pop 
area, and claimed that as a “Musical 
Mayo Clinic for Ailing Acts,” Nash- 
ville had rejuvenated the careers of 
many big name ai’tists. 

Concluded Gallagher: “(country mu- 
sic is) here to stay with a potential 
that’s greater than ever.” 


Presidential Message 
Delivered To CMA Meet 

NASHVILLE — A personal message of 
greeting from President Lyndon B. 
Johnson was carried to the (Irand Ole 
Opry’s birthday celebration by his 
own delegate John Gonella, who deliv- 
ered the statement at the CMA ban- 
quet last week. 

Gonella. a presidential aide, and his 
wife Ashton (Mrs. Johnson’s personal 
secretary), arrived with Representa- 
tive William Anderson and were wel- 
comed by Rep. Richard Fulton. They 
then attended the banquet and Gonella 
read the following message from LBJ : 
I am delighted to send my best 
wishes to all who participate in 
the annual convention of the 
Country Music Association. Coun- 
try Music grew out of the roots 
of this nation. It is a cherished 
part of the lifeblood of America’s 
cultural heritage. You who per- 
petuate and preserve it enhance 
an enriching aspect of our nation- 
al character. 

Discussing the President’s musical 
tastes afterward, Gonella said: “he’s 
a Texan and country music is his nat- 
ural heritage.” He also noted that 
Lucy Johnson Nugent’s record collec- 
tion is dominated by c&w artists such 
as Eddy Arnold and Hank Williams. 

Other notables in attendance in- 
clude: Edwin Craig, chairman of the 
board of National Life and Accident 
Insurance (which snonsors the Grand 


Owens Show To Village 

NEW YORK — Flower Power fans, 
whose only acquaintance with Buck 
Owens might be a familiarity with 
“Act Naturally” in the Ringo Staim 
version, will have two chances to see 
the C&W artist and his package show 
when it moves into the village Theater 
in Greenwich Village for two per- 
formances Sunday after next (12). 

The shows are slated for 4 p.m. and 
8:30 at night, with tickets ranging 
from three to five dollars. 

Along with Buck Owens and His 
Buckaroos, the bill featui’es Rose Mad- 
dox, Wynn Stewart, and Tommy Col- 
lins. Stewart is now riding country 
best seller lists with “’Cause I Have 
You” and Collins’ latest is “Big “Dum- 
my.” 

Actually, the Village set is not quite 
as un-country-fied as they are gener- 
ally depicted since many of the leading- 
groups assert the influence of country 
music on the current pop and rock 
sound.

CMA- WSM Workshop Points Up C& WGrowth 


NASHVILLE— The Sales and Pro- 
gramming Workshop, co-sponsored by 
the CMA and WSM during the 1967 
Country Convention, drew a crowd of 
over 300 broadcasters, headed by a 
panel of hand-picked business people, 
who painted a picture of continual 
growth in the field of Country Music. 
Held at the Municipal Auditorium, 
the Workshop featured a panel com- 
posed of Mrs. Dolly Kephart of 
Tucker, Wayne & Co.; Joe Epstein of 
Loisianne Coffee; Harold Krelstein of 
Plough Broadcasting and Ed Bunker 


dee-jays that as the professional as- 
pects of the C&W performer im- 
prove, so does his appeal to the gen- 
eral public. i 

Another point brought out in the ! 
workshop was that so long as the • 
artist’s personal appearance was con- 
sistent with his sound on the records, 
the listening fans were pleased. 

Report after report came from all 
over the country of booming sales, 
increased response to the dee- jay P 
presentation of country music, ana ’ 
clamor for personal appearances .

specific areas of growth in the in- 
dustry. 

Sparked by questions from the au- 
dience and often leaning on practic- 
ing experts in the meeting rooms, the 
group pointed out that not only are 
the regular and well beloved artists 
and performers sought after, but the 
young newcomers to the field are 
gaining popularity and favor at the 
sales counters. It is apparent to the 


wherever possible. 

On the question of input of ne-w 
talent to the field, there seemed to 
be concerted opinion that there is a 
place for the youngster. He is wel- 
comed by agencies, bookers, pro- 
moters, publishers and record makers. 

General comment was fixed on one 
point: the ever-growing popularity 
and stupendous success of C&W is. 
unequalled by past years, it shows 
promise of yet greater peaks to come.

C Pick o/ this Week } 

LEON ASHLEY (Ashley 2025) 

Anna, I'm Taking Y'ou Home (2:22) [A1 Gallico BMI-Singleton, Ashley] 

Leon Ashley seems to be building- up a harem as he bounces from 
“Laura,” who proved to be a giant for him, to “Anna, I’m Taking- You 
Home.” The sentimental offering is a sure-shot to score many more points 
for Ashley as it bounds up the charts. No flip info available at this time. 


LYNN ANDERSON (Chart 1010) 

Promises, Promises (2:10) [Yonah BMI-Smith, Hughey] 

Back into the uptempo bag after scoring with her ballad rendition of 
“Too Much Of You,” Lynn Anderson prepares to ride, ride, ride up the 
charts once again with “Promises, Promises.” As a result of the Chart 
label’s new affiliation with Victor, this could be her biggest to date. Flip: 
“It Makes You Happy” (2:39) [Yonah BMI-Woods] 


RED SOVINE (Starday 823) 

Tell Maude I Slipped (2:20) [Champion BMI-Crutchfield] 

As his “Phantom 309” continues to nestle on the Top 50 chart. Red 
Sovine launches another well-guided missile, this one called “Tell Maude 
I Slipped.” Sort of old-timey and pop-flavored, the loping, easy-going 
sound could be another twin-market goodie for the redhead. Flip: “Not 
Like It Was With You” (2:40) [Cedarwood BMI-Walker, Tillis] 


BROWNS (RCA Victor 9364) 

I Will Bring You M'^ater (2:05) [4 Star Sales BMI-Colley, Mantz] 

Although they have just disbanded, Maxine, Bonnie and Jim Ed Brown 
should have no trouble scoring chart points with this team effort tabbed 
“I Will Bring You Water.” Filled with the smooth touch that makes 
them a favorite with folk-country fans. Flip: “Big Daddy” (1:59) [Acuff- 
Rose BMI-Loudermilk] 


RAY PILLOW (Capitol 2030) 

Gone With The Wine (2:37) [Barmour BMI-Moon] 

Looks like Ray Pillow should be making a respectable re-entry into the 
hitsville picture with “Gone With The Wine.” The thunkin’, blues-filled 
ode gets a fine treatment from the songster and stands a good chance to 
become a steady climber. Flip: “No Milk Today” (2:20) [Southtown BMI- 
Crysler] 


HUGH X. LEWIS (Kapp 868) 

Wrong Side Of The World (2:25) [Zanetis BMI-Zanetis] 

The success of his recent charter, “You’re So Cold (I’m Turning Blue),” 
lends added emphasis to Hugh X. Lewis’ followup effort, tabbed “Wrong 
Side Of The World.” The thumping lament is an attractive offering for 
programmers. Flip: “Your Steppin’ iStone” (2:23) [Freeway BMI-Dar- 
nell, Luper] 



STARS OF THE GRAND OLE OPRY— Various 7 
Artists — RCA Victor LPM 6015 i 

A must for every country buyer, this handsome- 
ly packaged, two-record set contains perform- 1 
ances by forty stars of the Grand Ole Opry in- I 
eluding Chet Atkins, Dottie West, Porter Wagon- I 
er, Connie Smith, Sonny James and the Carter jk 
Family. As a special bonus, an actual segment of I 
the “Famous Old Curtain” from the Grand Ole 
Opry stage is affixed to the descriptive booklet in- ; 
side the package. Issued in a limited edition, f 
“Stars Of The Grand Ole Opry” could easily be a 
sell-out item. 



‘SPANISH FIRE BALL’ AND OTHER GREAT 
HANK SNOW STYLINGS— RCA Victor LPM/ 
LSP 3857 


Hank Snow’s numerous fans should find his 
latest album of great interest, for it shows the 
artist in a new light, Latin light, to be precise. 
Leading off with the title ditty. Hank goes on to 
perform “Cross The Brazos At Waco,” “El Paso,” 
“Nuevo Laredo,” and seven more exciting num- 
bers. Should be a lot of chart action in store for 
this one. Watch it move. 


I’LL HELP YOU FORGET HER— Dottie West— 
RCA Victor LPM/LSP 3830 

Dottie West should have no difficulty securing 
a high chart berth with her latest album. Singing 
each number for all it’s worth, the famed lark 
offers “Give Him My Love,” “Funny, Familiar 
Foi-gotten Feelings,” “I’ll Help You Forget Her,” 
“Walk Throug-h This World With Me” and eight 
others. Bound to be another big one for Dottie 
here. Don’t let it out of your sight. 


WHAT AM I BID? — Music From The Original 
Soundtrack— MGM E/SE 4506 ST 

This highly entertaining album contains orig- 
inal soundtrack performances of ten songs from 
the movie, “What Am I Bid?” Leroy Van Dyke, 
the star of the film, sings the title ditty and six 
others. Faron Young, Tex Ritter and Johnny Sea, 
who also appear in the film, offer one number 
each. A spirited effort from beginning to end, the 
set could develop into a much sought-after item. 
Keep an eye on it. 


RALPH EMERY (ABC 11001) 

Yodelin’ Jim (3:05) [Magic Circle BMI-Franks, Arington] 

Another fine recitation by TV-radio personality Ralph Emery, “Yodelin’ 
Jim” could be that big one he’s been looking for. The sentiment-filled 
story gets Ralph’s usual ultra-smooth treatment, in addition to some 
added flavoring by a top-name mystery guest handling the yodeling. 
Flip: “One More For The Road” (2:21) [Yonah BMI-L./C. Anderson] 


LUCILLE STARR (Epic 10247) 

(Bonjour Tristesse) Hello Sadness (2:13) [Newkeys BMI-Baham, New- 
man] 

Lucille Starr’s solo effort on “Too Far Gone” stirred up a good deal of 
noise, and this latest deck, titled “Bonjour Tristesse) Hello Sadness” 
threatens to go even farther. Lai'k’s feelingful style is put to good use 
with these plaintive lyrics. Flip: “Before The Next Teardrop Falls” (2:29) 
[Fingerlake BMI-Peters, Keith] 


BILLY MIZE (Columbia 44339) 

The Lights Of Albuquerque (2:07) [Vintage BMI-Tapp, Tubert] 

Here’s a Billy Mize effort that might well put the songster’s name up 
in lights. The lid, called “The Lights Of Albuquerque,” is a war-oriented 
item tale of tragedy that gets a nice treatment in Billy’s hands. Flip: 
“I’d Rather Have You Than My Pride” (2:09) [Seashell BMI-Mize] 




THE FASTEST GUITAR IN THE COUNTRY— 
Jimmy Bryant — Imperial LP 9360/LP 12360 

A versatile, technically accomplished and thor- 
oughly swinging guitarist, Jimmy Bryant should 
earn the enthusiasm of a large country audience 
with this powerhouse album. Giving a flawless 
performance on each number, Bryant offers 
“Twelfth Street Rag,” “Georgia Boogie,” “Orange 
Blossom Special,” “Tico-Tico” and eight others. 
Bryant also plays the fiddle (extremely well, it 
should be noted) on the set. Fine production. 


LONGTIME TRAVELING— Buddy Cagle— Im- 
perial LP 9361/LP 12361 

Buddy Cagle is really in good form on this 
striking album. An imaginative collection of 
traveling songs, the set contains such potent 
tunes as “Longtime Traveling,” “I Won’t Be Long 
In Your Town,” “Walkin’ On New Grass” and 
“Cincinnati Stranger.” Be sure to put this one 
on your list of disks to watch. It could prove to be 
Buddy’s most successful album venture to date.

Wesley Rose Receives 

Third Metronome Award 

NASHVILLE — In a special ceremony 
held during the recent 42nd birthday 
celebration of the Grand Ole Opry, 
Wesley Rose, president of Acuff-Rose 
Publications, was presented with the 
third annual Metronome Award. 

The award, presented by Nashville 
Mayor Beverly Briley on the stage at 
the Opry House, recognizes the per- 
son “Who has contributed the most 
to country music during the past 
year.” 

Owen Bradley and Chet Atkins are 
the previous recipients of the Metro- 
nome Award. 

Rose thanked the mayor simply 
“from the bottom of my heart.” 

The mayor replied, “I just repre- 
sent the people of Music City and all 
the people you work with who made 
this selection.” 

Rose heads one of Nashville’s oldest 
and largest music publishing, booking- 
agency and recording complex. He 
joined the company a year after it 
was founded by his father, the late 
Fred Rose, and country music star 
Roy AcufF. 

He has seen it grow from a one- 
room operation in 1944 to a worldwide 
enterprise headquartered in a hand- 
some new $500,000 building. It has 
publishing and recording affiliates in 
more than 20 countries and a com- 
pletely staffed British subsidiary. 

Earlier in the festival that marks 
the Opry anniversary, Rose’s firm 
received Citations of Achievement 
from Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), 
recognizing the success of five songs 
it published in the country music 
field. 

Born in Chicago, Rose studied ac- 
counting at Walton School of Com- 
merce there and worked as an ac- 
countant at Standard Oil in Whiting, 
Ind. 

In 1945, Rose visited his father in 
Nashville. He took a look at the books 
of the new Acuff-Rose concern and 
suggested some improvements. His 
father countered by inviting him to 
take over the management of the 
firm. 

Rose played a key role in merchan- 
dising the song writing output of his 
father, of Acuff and of the late Hank 
Williams. 

He later brought into the Acuff- 
Rose fold such writing talents as 
Marty Robbins, the Everly Brothers, 
Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, John 
D. Loudermilk, Don Gibson and Roy 
Orbison. 

Rose is one of the three founders of 
the Country Music Association and 
is the only member of the board of 
directors of the American Society of 
Composers, Authors and Publishers 
J^ASCAP) from outside of the New 
York-iChicago-Los Angeles area. 


Low-Sal Prod^s Bows 

■ATLANTA, Ga. — A new production 
company, Low-Sal Productions, has 
just been formed by Bill Lowery, 
Buddy Buie and Paul Cochran. Low- 
Sal Pi'oductions will operate as a sub- 
sidiary of the newly formed Low-Sal 
Music Company. Low-Sal Music en- 
joyed success with its first copyright, 
“I Take It Back,” (recorded by Sandy 
Posey on MGM), which was a top 20 
item on the national chart. Low-Sal 
Productions most recently produced 
an album and a single by the Candy- 
men on ABC Records. 

Each one of the owners of Low-Sal 
Productions will function in a different 
capacity. Management will be directed 
by Bill Lowery, who over the years 
has operated various publishing firms, 
among them Lowery Music. Buddy 
Buie will guide the creative aspect 
of the company, while Paul Cochran 
will head all promotion. Buddy Buie 
produced the current Candymen al- 
bum. He is also a song writer and has 
to his credit Sandy Posey’s “I Take 
It Back,” Tommy Roe’s “Party Girl,” 
and the new Candymen single, “Geor- 
gia Pines.” Paul Cochran has long 
been a concert promoter in the south 
but is now devoting all his promotional 
abilities to Low-Sal. 

Low-Sal Productions will operate 
from the Gearhart Building in Atlan- 
ta, and will employ a complete staff 
guided by office manager Bobby Lang- 
ford. The New York firm of Sicilia 
Associates, Inc. will handle public re- 
lations, and is at the present time 
undertaking a promotional build-up 
on behalf of the Candymen. The basic 
aim of Low-Sal Music and Low-Sal 
Productions is to “commercialize the 
ethnic and artistic sounds of the south 
without compromise.” 


Tracton To Bow Unique 
Pantomime LP Recording 

HOLLYWOOD — An early November 
release date has been set for a “first” 
album from Red Tracton’s newly 
formed Tracton Records. The LP is 
a first for the industry in that it is a 
■panto^nime set featuring Ben Blue 
performing to music by Jerry Bock. 

Explanatory dialogue will be pro- 
vided by off-Broadway’s “Superman” 
star Bob Holiday reading notes by 
Sheldon Harnick. Bock and Harnick 
are the team that wrote lyrics and 
music for “Fiddler On the Roof.” 

Current recordings from the label 
are a single and LP by Lee Simmons. 

According to Tracton, if the panto- 
mime LP is accepted, he plans to fly 
overseas to contact Charles Chaplin 
for negotiations on some of the Chap- 
lin classics for future releases.

KEEPING NASHVILLE GREENE— 

The First Annual CMA Awards dinner 
and show was a spectacle in Greene — 
Jack Greene, that is. The former drum- 
mer with Ernest Tubb’s Texas Trou- 
badors rocketed to fame as a soloist 
this year with his giant Decca single, 
“There Goes My Everything,” which 
proved to be the beginning of one of 
the hottest careers to come out of 
Nashville in some time. Not only was 
the deck instrumental in launching 
Greene to dizzying heights, but it also 
made Greene the majority stockholder 
in the brand new CMA “Bullets” (so 
dubbed because of the shape of the 
award). Greene stumbled home from 
the dinner under the staggering weight 
of three awards, more than was re- 
ceived by any other performer. The 
awards were for “Single Of The 
Year,” “Album Of The Year” (also 
for “There Goes My Everything”) and 
Male Vocalist of The Year. 


Buffalo Springfield Cites 
Country Artists Influence 

NEW YORK — Pop-blues and elec- 
tronic music favorites the Buffalo 
Springfield gave credit where credit 
was due in a list citing a series of 
ai’tists and others whose “influence 
and inspiration” helped shape their 
new LP. 

Devoting more than half the back 
cover of their “Buffalo Springfield 
Again” album to performers and dig- 
nitaries in the country, pop and rock 
field, the group included kudos to Doc 
Watson, Roy Orbison, Ian & Sylvia, 
Hank Williams, Floyd Cramer, the 
Dillards, Chet Atkins, Flatt & 
Scruggs, and Pete Seeger. 

Others also cited for known or un- 
known support were: Lisa Kindred, 
Bob Gibson, Tim Hardin, and Judy 
Collins. 

The set was hurried into release late 
last week. 


Joey Welz Active 
On Varied Fronts 

SALISBURY, Md.— Joey Welz, inde- 
pendent producer and president of his 
Dawn Productions, Ltd., and Leonard 
Zimmer, president of Canadian Amer- 
ican Records, have signed a produc- 
tion deal which calls for the produc- 
tion and leasing of six Canadian 
American owned masters by Welz to 
interested record companies for inter- 
national release. The first masters, 
“Rhapsody For A Summer Night” 
b/w “A Soldier’s Star,” have .ilready 
been released by Palmer Records in 
Detroit. As yet not placed are “A 
Million Drums” b/w “Candle In The 
Wind” and “Ponchinello” b/v/ “For- 
ever.” Welz’ first release on the Can- 
adian American label was in 1964 en- 
titled, “Hey Little Moonbeam,” writ- 
ten by Welz and Steve Lawrence and 
produced by the latter’s brother, Ber- 
nie Lawrence, when he was general 
manager for the label. 

Welz is currently doing well through- 
out parts of North Carolina, Virginia, 
and Maryland with “You Changed” on 
Teardrop Records, produced by Huey 
Meaux. Future recordings for Welz 
will be produced by A1 Caiola and Phil 
Bodner of Boldex Productions in New 
York.

DECCA-RATING THE NASHVILLE SCENE— During the recent Music City 
festival, Decca Recor’ds hosted a couple of different get-togethers, one a shoAV

event for posterity. The top two photos, taken during the Auditorium show, 
see (left) Ernest Tubb being introduced to the audience by Decca vp Marty 
Salkin and (right) Jack Greene giving a sample of the form that won him 
three CMA “Bullets.” In the bottom row, some scenes at the Bradley’s barn 
party show Wilma Burgess being greeted by executive vp Leonard Schneider, 
sales vp Sydney Goldberg and president Milt Rackmil. A final shot groups long- 
time country favorites Johnny Wright and Kitty Wells with Schneider, Bobby 
Wright. Rackmil and Decca’s Nashville A&R chief Owen Bradley.

Hangin’ On (2:38) [Garpax, Alanbo BMI-Mize, Allen] 

Although the Gosdin Bros, are now coming into their own with their 
version of “Hangin’ On,” Mark Dinning may slip through and slice off a

JIMlMY smart (Jed 10,008) 

Try Crossing Over Sometime (2:20)

Great Britain 


Notwithstanding a fall off of disk sales in July when compared with the 
exceptional business of the previous month, the British record industry is still 
on course for a record sales year. Board of Trade statistics reveal that disk 
sales for last July totalled £1,661,000 ($4,650,800). While this was a big drop 
from the June total of £2,054,000 ($5,751,200), it was nevertheless slightly up 
on the previous July sales value of £1,621,000 ($4,538,800). Export figures for 
July were £296,000 ($828,800). While this total was also a dip on the previous 
month’s sum of £324,000 ($907,200) in export business, it was nonetheless a 
9 per cent increase on the export total of July, 1966, i.e. £273,000 ($764,400). 
Production of records, meantime, continued at a pace. The total July production 
of 5,944,000 records of all kinds was slightly less than the production total of 
the preceding month but 16 per cent up on the comparative period in the previ- 
ous year. The boom in album production continues, though figures were slightly 
off. A total of 2,237,000 LPs were produced in July against 2,862,000 in June 
and 1,760,000 in the previous July. 45 r.p.m. disks, singles and extended play 
records, increased production, however, and made significant gains after a 
slowing up period. Some 3,691,000 45 r.p.m. disks were produced in July against 
3,457,000 in June and 3,349,000 in July, 1966. 

The songwriting team of Don Black and Mark London, whose “To Sir With 
Love” scored a No. 1 hit in the U.S. via a disk by Lulu, are paired again for 
another title song of a film. This time it’s a Harry Allan Towers production 
“House Of A Thousand Dolls.” Number is published by Harold Shampan’s 
Filmusic, a company which is celluloid-orientated and, through Shampan him- 
self, a big influence on the British film scene so far as music is concerned. The 
publisher is currently working on material from four film projects for which 
he has acted as music co-ordinator. In addition to “House (3f A Thousand 
Dolls,” these include “The Real Me” featured number in “The Vengeance of 
Fu Manchu.” Don Black penned this work, too, with Malcolm Lockyer. Samantha 
Jones sings it in the film. Third film in Shampan’s current bag is “Five Golden 
Dragons,” and he is publishing the music plus the title song by Lois Lane and 
Hal Shaper. Among his film properties currently coming to the fore, Shampan 
is probably most excited about the Manfred Mann-Mike Hugg score (their 
first) for “Up The Junction.” Shampan holds the U.K. rights only and Famous 
Music publish it in the rest of the world. There are four songs included in the 
score including the title song, and Shampan, with 30 years experience of the 
film market, confidently expects the film to be a box office smash — with music 
to match. 

Meantime, Don Black, who has had a long association with Shampan in the 
area of film writing, is going from strength to strength in this particular field. 
Following his No. 1 hit and the enormous success of “Born Free” which he 
wrote with John Barry, Black has been assigned to write two songs with Henry 
Mancini for Peter Sellers’ new film “The Party.” Numbers will be sung in the 
film by Claudine Longet (wife of Andy Williams). Black’s latest British release 
is Matt Monro’s “Pretty Polly” from the Hayley Mills film published by Leeds 
Music. 

Latest in the line of tape cartridge marketeers to set up operations in the 
U.K. is Clive King, Managing Director of C.K. Enterprises. King has wrapped 
up a deal with American Muntz Stereo Pak and Muntz International and has 
just launched King Stereo. Primarily aimed at the car trade, generally acknowl- 
edged to be the biggest potential market for tape cartridges. King Stereo was 
launched, appropriately, at the Motor Show in London last week. King is mar- 
keting three car model tape machines plus two playback units for the home. 
Former are sold at anything between £25 and £30 ($70-84) while the four 
and eight track domestic units range between £60 and £93 ($168-$246). King, 
who has spent the past two months setting up nationwide distribution for King- 
Stereo through car radio dealers, has drawn repertoire from sources such as 
Capitol, Warner Bros. -Reprise and Pye. He will retail cartridge at £2 ($5.60) 
slightly below Philips cassette price but higher than some other competitive 
cartridge operations. According to King, he has 200 tapes available and expects 
to issue a healthy number of new titles on a monthly basis. 

The Decca Record company this week hosted a party for British R&B ex- 
ponent John Mayall to launch his new single “Suspicions.” John Mayall and 
the Bluesbreakers are all set to visit America in January, 1968. After two weeks 
at the “A Go Go” (New York) commencing January 9th, they will spend an- 
other week playing one-nighters in the area, thence to California for three 
weeks. Other engagements already slated for 1968 include an appearance at 
the Grand Gala Du Disque in Amsterdam and a return tour of Scandinavia. 
“Suspicions” is to be issued in America coincidental with their 1968 visit. | 

Manager Lee Magid in town to set a British tour for Della Reese early in i 
1968. This will be the singer’s first visit to Britain in four years. Early in 
November EMI are to issue her album “Della On Strings Of Blue.” Magid, who 
also manages Columbia artist O. C. Smith (formerly of Count Basie fame), 
has meetings with CBS in London to discuss possible release cf his latest album 
“Dynamic O.C. Smith.” Magid signed a management deal with British group 
the Riot Squad and cut singles and album tracks for subsequent release on both 
sides of the Atlantic. 

It’s been a big week for the Bee Gees. They hit the No. 1 slot in all British 
charts with their “Massachusetts” single with sales in excess of 300,000 copies 
and still going strong. To mark the occasion Roland Rennie, Managing Director 
of Polydor Records, gave a celebration luncheon party at the New Casanova 
Club. The Bee Gees are currently shooting up the Cash Box Top 100 with the 
fast selling single “Holiday” on Atco. Another cause for celebration came with 
the decision by the Ministry of Labour to extend indefinitely the work permits 
for the two Australian members of the group. Their next single “World” has 
already been cut and will be issued shortly. 

Allan Stagg has been appointed manager of EMI’s recording studios. He 
succeds Mr. E. Fowler who has retired after mor ethan 43 years service with 
EMI Records, the last 11 of them as manager of the studio, Stagg was formerly 
with IBC studios whom he joined in 1955 becoming a Director of the company 
in 1965. Conductors and artists Stagg has worked with include Sir Thomas 
Beecham, Sir Adrian Boult, Colin Davis, Peter Pears, Petula Clark, the Beatles 
and the Rolling Stones. 

Music for Pleasure report a 54 per cent increase in sales for the period March 
to August as against the same period last year. Their August sales actually 
showed a 180 per cent increase. Their latest release comprises a follow-up to 
their “Hits 67” album (which has sold over 100,000 since May) entitled “Smash 
Hits” covering 12 of the year’s biggest hits such as “Puppet On A String,” 
“Whiter Shade Of Pale,” etc. Other albums feature Marilyn Monro, Chris 
Farlowe and Arthur Askey.

Twenty months after the Philips decision to retail every LP at 19,95 Francs, 
it now appears that this price will not become general. On the contrary, most

tions of French producers who want to organize a very strong French market 
before the beginning of the European Common Market.

tion, cieated in England three years ago and already famous in Germany and 
Italy, will certainly be welcomed in France. For the occasion, Frank Pourcel 
recorded an album with 12 movie themes: “Is Paris Burning? ” “This Is My 
Song,” etc. ’

mal building serves every year as a 
\ meeting place for all the top execu- 
J tives of the Italian record industry. 

\ The interest in this contest, orga- 
nized by Gianni Ravera (also organi- 
zer of the San Remo Festival) is due 
I to the fact that automatically the win- 
T V" ners of the contest will make their 
n debut on the San Remo stage and are 
* the only newcomers admitted to this 
in top song Festival. 

[([ It is interesting to stress that the 
111 contest in past editions has revealed 

^ ' talents such as Gigliola Cinquetti, 
[) Bruno Filippini, Iva Zanicchi, Anna- 
y . rita Spinaci, among others, who have 
been and still are top sellers on the 
I ^ Italian record scene. 

} Artists who appear have to be com- 

i , pletely unknown, and with no record- 
ing engagements. Through a special 
' contract signed by the debuting artists. 


the Castrocaro organizers have the 
right to assign them to different rec- 
ord firms. 

The twelve finalists of the Castro- 
caro’s contest, are presented, one week 
before the final night of the contest, 
to record firms and they make an offer, 
submitted in a closed envelope. 

The final night of the contest is 
televised on a national network, and 
the public is invited to vote for the 
two singers they prefer, among the 
twelve presented on the Castrocaro 
stage. The 'winners are declared ac- 
cording to the votes received, and they 
ai-e assigned under exclusive recording- 
pact, to the record firm that has of- 
fered the highest price. 

All twelve singers presented this 
year by Ravera were of very high 
class, and in the opinion of all special- 
ized journalists present in the Castro- 
caro hall, at least eight of them, 
should have had the right of being 
present on tbe San Remo stage. Any- 
way, the greatest number of votes 
were assigned to Elio Gandolfi and 
Giusi Romeo. 

The highest offer for Gandolfi was 
made by Cemed Carosello, while for 
the same reason Giusi Romeo was as- 
signed to EMI Italiana.

Global R&B Push From Monument 


HOLLYWOOD — Monument Records 
has set in motion a major global push 
on its rhythm-and-blues acts, as heard 
on the label’s affiliate, Sound Stage 7. 

“We have, in the past, always alert- 
ed our licensees to important releases 
by our various artists,” said Fred 
Foster, Monument president, “but now, 
the Sound Stage 7 pez-formers, their 
managers and agencies are being en- 
couraged to set world tours so that 
we can bring the impact direct to the 
foreign record-buying public.” 

Confirming this, Bobby Weiss, vice- 
president and Director of Monument’s 
International Division, reports that 
cun-ently Sound Stage 7 artist Sam 
Baker is on a one-nighter swing 
through the Continent and England 
as part of the “Sam and Dave Revue” 
and Monument licensees rush-released 
his newest “I Believe In You” single 
to tie in with the performances taking- 
place in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, 
Holland, France, Norway, Finland and 
England. “Plans are also underway 


for chart-maker” Joe Simon to go 
over in the near future and recently- 
signed Roscoe Robinson is being set 
by his manager, for a tour of Europe 
and England the early part of 1968.” 

All of the Sound Stage 7 material 
appears on the Monument logo inter- 
nationally with Disques Barclay of 
France being one of the major pro- 
moters of the Sound Stage 7 catalog 
including artists such as Joe Simon, 
Sam Baker, Milton Howard, Roscoe 
Shelton, Sir Lattimore Brown, Jamo 
Thomas, Ted Ford, etc. 

“Holland is now very alert to the 
possibilities of tbis market potential 
and slowly, Germany, Scandinavia and 
South Africa are beginning to open up 
for this pi-oduct,” said Weiss. He point- 
ed out that Australia, New Zealand 
and parts of the Orient, excluding the 
Philippines, have not yet expressed 
their “faith” in this type of product 
for the respective markets but it was 
“only a matter of time and exposure.” 



FAR FROM THE GOLDEN GATE — Scott McKenzie (right), accompanied by 
his manager Lou Adler recently traveled to Holland to promote his “Like An 
Old Time Movie” follow up to “San Francisco — Flowers In Your Hair.” He 
appeared on the local Monitor show. CBS Grammofoonflaten organized a press 
pai’ty at the Fietsotheque Club in the Amsterdam Hilton, where man.v local 
dealers met the chanter. Scott is shown here as he chats with CBS public 
relations managei', Leo Moolenijzer. 


Mina Forms PDU Label Thru Durium 


MILAN, ITALY — In a recent issue of 
Cash Box, it was reported that top 
Italian lark Mina would form a new 
record firm for the release of her 
own recoi-dings at the expiration of 
her agreement with RI.FI Records in 
December. It was also reported that 
Durium would distribute the label. 
Official confirmation of both reports 
was received last week from Durium 
president Krikor Mintangian. 

Mintangian announced that Mina 
has formed a new label called PDU 
(Plattendurcherbeitung Ultraphon 
AG) with offices at Schann in the little 
state of Liechtenstein. President of the 
new company is Giangiorgio Spies, an 
attorney at law. 

Durium has signed an exclusive 
distribution pact with PDU for the 
sales and licensing of all PDU product 


in Italy and in all countries of the 
world. Durium will manufacture PDU 
disks and pay PDU Lit. 300 (about 
$0.48) in royalties for every record 
sold. Durium will also pay authors’, 
composers’ and publishers’ royalties 
on all PDU disks. 

PDU will pay for all its recording 
sessions and for the promotion of its 
product. 

Durium will receive 35% of all prof- 
its deriving to PDU from licensing 
agreements made with foreign coun- 
tries. Durium will license the PDU 
catalog separately from its own, ac- 
cepting the best offers from foreign 
licensees. Offers for the representation 
of the PDU catalog have already been 
received by Durium from Spain, South 
America, the U.S., Germany and 
Japan. 


RiFi To Handle Supraphon In Italy 


MILAN — RiFi Records has obtained 
rights to the Supraphon catalog of 
Czechoslovakia in Italy. The exclusive 
distribution and representation deal 
involves Supraphon’s large catalog 
of pop, folk and light music, although 


the label centers its attention on clas- 
sical LP’s. Supraphon classics number 
750 albums. A large number of clas- 
sics will be offered in Italy by RiFi. 
Giovanbattista Ansoldi, managing di- 
rector of RiFi, revealed the deal.

As the Sao Paulo National Festival reaches its climax, the Rio de Janeiro 
international Festival is ready to start. Some of the international personalities 
invited are already arriving- starting with the producer and director of the film 
that will be shot during its presentation. 

Companhia Brasileira de Discos (Philips) has already released three albums 
with the 36 chosen numbers of the Sao Paulo National Festival. In addition, 
other companies released singles of the artists who participated in the elimi- 
natory presentations. For instance, Chico Buarque de Hollanda (RGE) with 
his “Roda Viva,” Jair Rodrigues (Philips) with “O Combatente” and “Samba 
De Maria,” Demetrius (Continental) with “Minha Gente,” Nana Caymmi with 
“Bom Dia,” and “Maria, Carnaval E Cinzas” by Roberto Carlos for CBS which 
will probably become a best-seller. Many of these records are already appearing 
in the local charts. 

It is announced that Johnny Rivers (RCA Victor) will soon come to Brazil 
for club acts and TV shows. Due to the popularity of the chanter here, expecta- 
tion is great. Another international artist being announced is Italian chantress 
Mina. It is obvious that a new phase of exchange between Brazil and other 
countries is on the way, partly due to the saturation of the public of Brazilian 
artists through repetition of TV shows.

“Beat” music seems to be entering a new era in Argentina with the develop- 
ment of several groups and the appearance of chanters working on the ideas 
sustained by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the psychedelic U.S. groups 
but adapted to the local market and, at an increased rate, sung in Spanish. The 
trend started by cover versions of the British artists’ smashes, released be- 
fore the original versions were available, but now some artists are working 
on their own products and cater to other audience, slightly younger than the 
Beatles & Co.’s fans, although many customers are also Liverpool-crazy. A 
recent recording by Los Gatos, “La Balsa,” has shown outstanding sales and 
recently publisher Mauricio Brenner of Fermata reported that his Ediciones 
Fermata has contracted several other tunes by the same composer, Lito Nevia, 
and will start a strong promo campaign. Incidentally, there are small hippie 
gatherings in Buenos Aires, but no LSD or flowers are apparently involved. 
Swedish artists the Con’s Combo are also exploring the field (their latest wax- 
ing, a cover of “Groovin’,” sold well), and so do others like the Gaston Group 
— currently on stage at the Di Telia with a show tagged “Beat Beat Beatles”- — 
and the Shimmy’s. The movement may result in a rich production of tunes that 
could even have international appeal, an effect seldom obtained by local teen 
composers — up to now at least. 

Odeon has created a Special Products Division designed to widen the market- 
ing approach and cover new fields, apart from the traditional factory-dealer- 
customer line. Juan Carlos Menna, formerly in charge of records promotion, 
will manage the division and is already working on several projects. It is 
interesting to note that only one other company, CBS, has such a department 
in its organization; another. Phonogram, has been applying package marketing 
techniques through its regular staff and has produced two folk & tango sets. 
Of course, the Reader’s Digest must be considered as the starter of the trend, 
being its records pressed by RCA. 

CBS is releasing an album devoted to psychedelic music and the hippie 
image with a selection of artists representing the latest news in the field. The 
diskery has been promoting lately the new Donovan single, “Thei-e Is A Moun- 
tain,” which is expected to sell strongly in Argentina. A previous Donovan 
effort, “Mellow Yellow,” appeared in the charts for several weeks, and there 
is also an album by the same chanter. 

Music Hall is promoting the first single by beat group the Walkers who 
started their career through the Escala Musical TV pi-ogram on Channel 11 a 
couple of months ago. Titles are “Gloria” and “Agarrate” and both are local 
products. The diskery is also preparing the release of the second album by 
folk artist Daniel Toro who has been fulfilling contracts in the provinces. Folk 
group Los Trovadores del Norte has been appearing in the North of the country 
and Paraguay and have returned to Buenos Aires. There is also another single 
by Chilean chanter Patricio Manns recorded for the Arena label of that country, 
“Los Mares Vacios.” 

Much news from Disc Jockey. There is a single with the soundtrack tunes 
from French film “A Coeur Joie” (starring Brigitte Bardot and Laurent 
Terzieff) titled “Do You Want to Marry Me?” and “I Must Tell You Why,” 
and also a single by Noelle Cordier (“Cheese”), along with a locally produced 
single with two tunes culled from the recent Icasto 6 LP: “Zamba Para No 
Morir” and “Del Tiempo I’ Mama.” As we reported previously, the album 
features folk music with modern arrangements and pop rythm. 

Mario Kaminsky of Microfon reports that the arrangement between the 
Diner’s Club and the diskery featuring a package tagged “Music For Execu- 
tives” is working very well. The set includes all sorts of instrumental and mood 
music with records by artists waxing for the labels represented by Microfon. 
On the pop side, there are two new singles by the Mac Ke Mac’s: “A Whiter 
Shade Of Pale” and “Aranjuez, Mon Anriour.” 

Trova is promoting its teen artists, the Bestias Peludas, whose first single, 
“Sweet Soul Music,” has been reportedly selling well. The diskery has also 
released an album cut originally by Folkways with “Songs Of Liberty” cut in 
Selma, Alabama. The first album by folk group Cuarteto Vocal Zupay will be 
ready in a couple of weeks. 

Ariel is releasing a new album by top Brazilian chanter Wilson Simonal 
tagged “Algo Mas” (Somethin’ More). Simonal records for Odeon in Brazil 
and his records are released here by Ariel due to a special arrangement. There 
is also an album by orkster Peruzzi and a single by Hugo Santana in Spanish 
with “Bom Rapaz.” The label is currently enjoying good sales with Brazilian 
chanter Eduardo Araujo, and especially his single “Mi Limon, Mi Limonero.” 

Phonogram reports the release of the second volume of the “Modart en la 
Noche” series named after the successful Kleinian radio program on Excelsior. 
There is also a new LP tagged “Strictly For Playboys” and the first one by 
the Four Seasons. There is also an album with the music from “Gone With The 
Wind” and another one by folk group Los Fronterizos: “Mundialmente.” There 
will also be an album by folk chanter Cesar Isella: “Young America.”

CashBOT Holland 


V" 

In remembrance to conductor Sir Malcolm Sargent, Martin Kleinjan of 
Bovema’s classical department released this week the album “Thanks! Sir 
- Malcolm” — “An Evening At The Proms” with the B.B.C. Symphony Orchestra. 
1 Sir Malcolm Sarg’ent was wellknown in Holland where his concerts were broad- 
casted by television. 


Every child in Holland will loudly cheer the six “mini-albums” released this 
• 'T week by Bovema with the stories of Peter Pan, The Lady And The Tramp, 
Bambi, Winnie The Pooh, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella. 
~ The albums contain a little book with 24 pages which are illustrated with 
j funny drawings. 

, John Walker, successful Philips artist, due here November 8 to do his first 
Dutch solo recording of “If I Promise” in the Phonogram studios. 

^ The Herd’s new Fontana recording, “From The Underworld,” became 10 in 
-f* the charts after the group’s personal appearance in a Dutch TV show October 
[i 10th. No doubt the record will climb further, especially since another promotion 
film will be issued on TV here. 


^ British singer Crispian St. Peters will do the song of his new recording 
“Free Spirit,” released by Decca this week, in Holland’s most popular TV 
magazine Fanclub. This show will also feature the Amen Corner to perform 
“The World Of Broken Hearts.” This new Deram success is bound to be another 
fabulous hit. 

, ^ On the London label Phonogram rush-released the Jimi Hendrix/Curtis 
Knight recording “Hush Now,” originally made by PPX Records, USA. For 
all Jimi Hendrix fans in Holland this release came as a big surprise and it is 
[ expected to be a fast charts climber. 


This week was marked by the release of a new Doors single, “People Are 
» Strange” and “Unhappy Girl” on Elektra. Though this new record is completely 
different from “Light My Fire,” press and radio were raving about this new 
< one. Negotiations to get the Doors to Holland for concerts are still being 
* continued. Their new LP “Strange Days” will be released in the very near 
future. 

One week before “Impressions Of Wonderful,” the third Motions LP was 
released, Negram-Delta launched a new single to the Dutch market entitled 
“Tonight Will Be Stoned.” More local productions will follow, e.g. “Another 
Step Closer”/“No More Love” by Shirley and Robert Dahl and “What Can I 
Do”/“Colours Of The Rainbow” by the Tee Set. 

/ While “Don’t Go Out Into The Rain” by David Garrick is shooting up the 
charts, Negram-Delta is eagerly waiting for two more Pye releases to enter 
the Dutch top-40: Clinton Ford’s C&W-flavored “Dance With A Dolly” and 
well-known Neil Christian with “You’re All Things Bright And Beautiful.” 

On Thursday October 19th, the K.O.R. T.V. screened a special program 
dedicated to Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis. Negram-Delta has released 
an LP with his songs sung in Greek by the well-known songstress Christina 
Ciinne. On the record have been featured the “Ballad Of Mauthausen” and 
“Songs Of Freedom And Love,” including “Lefteria” smuggled out of Greece, 
and “Allysida,” Theodorakis most forbidden song, both recorded for the first 
^ time. 

New releases in the CBS single field include the second single by the local 
group Sweet Nothing “Little One,” as well as a three-record single set entitled 
“De minimolen” (The Mini Mill) specially made up for children after the 
popular TV-series “De Minimolen.” Further CBS releases in the popular album 
field include Johnny Cash’s “Greatest Hits” featuring such famous songs as 
•' “I Walk The Line,” “Ring Of Fire,” “It Ain’t Me Babe,” and “Orange Blossom 
Special”; the first album by the Afro Blues Quintet Plus One as well as a 
wonderful LP recording by Mariachi Los Mensajeros entitled “More Marlachi.” 

Iramac extended its successful operetta series on its Bellaphon label with 
two more albums, “Paganini” and “Rosen Von Stanbul.” Both, of course, per- 
formed by the Wiener Volksoper are follow ups to such best sellers as “Lustige 
Witwe,” “Blume von Hawaii” among others. Another best selling album on 
Bellaphon is by the Hammon Brothers, performing standards in wonderful 
stereo sound. 


Success goes on in Holland for the real budget line. Iramac reports big 
r sales and a still-growing interest for its Europa and Somerset labels. With 
highlights in “Mexico Party” and “Egerlander Musik,” thousands of albums 
* are sold every week to the public which is hungry to buy more and more 
stereo albums.

The autumn promotional campaign of Southern Music is concentrated on four 
foreign copyrights. The first two numbers selected — “Tatata” and “L’Oiseau De 
Nuit” — are penned by Michel Polnareff and recorded by him in Italian for Saar. 
The other two numbers — “Finchley Central” and “Peek A Boo” — have been 
recorded by top group New Vaudeville Band and released in Italy by Phono- 
gram under the Fontana label. “Peek A Boo” has been recorded in Italian by 
Ricordi’s Bobby Solo, whose disc has obtained a strong sales reaction. 

Also strongly promoted by Southern is “Detroit City,” originally grooved by 
Tom Jones and released in Italy under the Decca label. The Italian version has 
now been released by a new Italian group, the Colours under the RIFI label. 

EMI Italiana has announced that their top artist A1 Bano will make his debut 
as an actor in the motion picture “Nel Sole” (“In The Sun”), same title of his 
current smash. Also announced by EMI Italiana, the release of a new single by 
the pop group I Nomadi; “Un Figlio Dei Fiori Non Pensa A1 Damani” and “Vola 
Bambino.” They have completely renewed their style in this disc. The group will 
take part in the next motion picture of Federico Fellini. Title of the new film 
be “Non Scommettere La Testa Del Diavolo.” Also from EMI Italiana, a new 
disc by Adamo: “H Nostro Ramanzo” and “La Mia Vita.” 

CBS Italiana has informed CB of the sales success of the Andre Lo Vecchio

Austraiia 


Australian Record Company are making their Christmas drive on their 
albums with special emphasis on three new packages: “Highlights From The 
Messiah” with Leonard Bernstein conducting the New York Philharmonic; 
“Music For A Merry Christmas” with E. Power Biggs at the organ; and 
‘‘Three Wise Men” by the Regency Choir. In the area of new singles disks, 
Australian Record Company have recently issued “Something’s Gotten Hold 
of My Heart” by Gene Pitney, “For What It’s Worth” by the Staple Singers, 
“Hey Baby” from the Buckinghams, “Lightning’s Girl’ with Nancy Sinatra, 
Noel Harrison is on Reprise with “Suzanne,” and English artist Lonnie Done- 
gan is heard on CBS with “Come To Australia (Great Uncle Albert Is Dead).” 

New sheet music issues to hand from publishing house of J. Albert & Son 
are “Talk To The Animals” (From “Doctor Doolittle”), “Apples, Peaches, 
Pumpkin Pie,” “The Letter,” “Making Every Minute Count,” and “You Know 
What I Mean.” Albert & Son have signed a three year songwriting contract 
■with Wayne Myers, a member of the local recording group Jeff St. John & the 
'iama, and his first composition under the deal, “Everybodys Gone” (Rode 
Away on Horses) is to be issued on a new single on the Spin label by that 
group. 

Australia’s most famous overseas musical ambassadors, the Seekers now 
have their latest single out, “When Will The Good Apples Fall.” It is a timely 
follow-up to “On The Other Side” which didn’t do as well as some of the 
group’s previous hits. 

RCA are having a great run with their entire catalog of discs by the Monkees. 
Singles, albums and EP’s are all grabbing a good slice of action, and it seems 
that anything bearing the name the Monkees stands an excellent chance of 
reaching hit status in this country. When their early records were first issued 
here (most notably “Last Train To Clarkesville”), some of them didn’t sell as 
well as was anticipated . . . but since the television series has been running, 
there has been quite a remarkable boost in disc sales by the group. Even some 
old solo masters by Davy Jones from the pre-Monkees days have been way up 
the hit charts of the nation. 

Local raido personality/funny man/restaurant operator/you name it/Noel 
Ferrier will shortly be heard on disc in an EP on the Astor label entitled 
“Ferrier Unfurled” in which he sings a diverse batch of goodies ranging from 
“Flora” right up to “All You Need Is Love” . . . Johnny Hawker supplies the 
backings. 

New sheet copy issues through the Southern Music group bring “All The 
Time,” “Let’s Go To San Francisco,” and “There Is A Mountain.” 

New locally-produced singles through the Festival group of labels feature 
Diane Horder with “Here Comes The Morning” c/w “Don’t Bother Me” on the 
Spin banner, and under the Clarion logo is Robby Snowden with “Sunshine 
Rides On A Trolley” and “Do You Want To Dance.” 

Blind disc-jockey Grantley Dee who does a daily program with station 3AK, 
has a new single release on the HMV label through E.M.I. The “A” side is 
“Stop Where You Are.” 

Australian girl Lana Cantrell, who recently returned to the United States 
after a very good personal appearance season, has her second album out now 
on RCA. Set is entitled “Another Shade of Lana.” RCA are supporting the 
release of the package with some very strong promotion work. 

Peter Lewis, manager of April Music, suddenly finds himself with a left- 
field smash in “Dream Girl” as released on the Astor label by Davy Jones. 
It’s a master from the pre-Monkees days. April have now issued the sheet 
copy of “Dream Girl.” 

On the subject of big songs, Tony Geary from J. Albert & Son Pty. Ltd., 
tells CASH BOX that the company has secured the publishing rights to the 
Vikki Carr smash, “It Must be Him.” They have rushed the sheet copy into 
print and it is now on the market and selling like crazy.

Put Another Nickel In 


A 


- I - 


There are a half-dozen or more counter games cur- 
rently being manufactured for and sold to the coin 
machine industry ... all designed to challenge a player’s 
ability to pass an electrically-charged ring over an arch- 
ing and bending metal rod. The recent popularity of 
these portable, light-weight wonders strikes an interest- 
ing parallel to the mad rush on pingames during the 
post war days. According to the general consensus of 
opinion, operators, then as now, are sticking the games 
out on location, and in a majority of cases, making their 
investment back in a matter of weeks . . . with nothing 
but gravy to follow. 

The mechanical principle involved is simple enough — 
so simple it’s unpatentable. But it’s this very structural 
simplicity that accounts for the extremely low purchase 
price to the operator. And even at 50 a play, amortization 
seems to be a relatively quick happening. 

Most of the tabletop units are designed to provoke 
customers in the neighborhood bar to test their physical 
coordination (or sobriety, if you will) by passing the ring 
from end to end without closing the circuit by hitting the 
rod. When they do hit it, and they normally will the first 
few times out, a bell goes off to let the rest of the folks 
know “this guy needs help.’’ It’s great fun and the prin- 
ciple can be applied to quite a number of coordination 
tests apart from sobriety — like ‘Punt Return’ and ‘Drag 
Strip’. 

Let’s get it on the record that this idea is not brand 
new by any means. What is new is the sudden popularity

FIRST SHIPMENT OF CINEJUKEBOXES— Tractor trailers loaded with the

of this type of game among operators and distributors 
plus the entrance of such specialized firms as the Irving 
Kaye Co. and United Billiards, Inc. into the production of i 
something outside their normal pool table interests. ' 

It’s apparent that the counter games do not serve as 
permanent location pieces in most cases . . . some call : ^ 
them “two week wonders’’, others say collections hold up ' ^ 
real fine up to six weeks. Naturally, there are those 
highly transient spots and arcade centers where the 
games could cook up profits virtually forever, but even ■ 

the manufacturers agree the very novelty of the piece is LI 
its appeal and nothing’s very novel after you’ve played it 
a couple of dozen times. What is recommended is to cir- 
culate a given number of units around the present music 
and games route at periods depending upon collection 
returns. Don’t be spooked by the thought of lugging 
pieces all over the route — these units are battery- Lj 
operated and light enough for the serviceman to tuck ' 

under an arm — almost as easy as changing records. 

We think the most impressive factor involved is that i 

these machines are almost for the exclusive use of op- 


erators with existing routes — where locations are already 
sewn up with a loan, bonus, smile or whatever. There’s 
really no place here for newcomers but there’s a tre- 
mendous profit potential for established tradesmen to 
put a little gravy on the weekly gross. If you haven’t al- 
ready done so, shoot down to the lo;al distributor and 
play a few rounds. You’ll see what we mean.

Margold Drums for NCMDA Support 

Appeals Sent to Distribs and Manufacturers 


I BOSTON — Irwin Margold, vice presi- 
1 *sient of Trimount Automatic Sales Co. 
’^has sent out a letter to all distributors 
throughout the coin machine industry 
urging their support and participa- 
tion in the National Coin Machine 
Distributors Association. 

Margold stressed to his fellow dis- 
tributors, “under today’s trying con- 
ditions, it is extremely important to 
( _,«J)e in a position to communicate with 
i ' your fellow distributors and maintain 

close relationship with manufac- 
I turers. 

“An exchange of information is in- 
valuable.” Margold related, “We feel 
that it is to everybody’s advantage to 
"+• 1)0 part and parcel, and active in an 
I organization, such as the National 
U<^oin Machine Distributors Associa- 
, tion.” 

“We feel extremely fortunate to 
have as our director. Bob Slifer, a 
' dedicated and conscientious man who 
is well known in the industry and 
' very highly regarded. In order for an 
association of this magnitude to be 
successful, we must have the moral 
'^.f'and financial support of all distribu- 
) tors and manufacturers. In numbers 
there is unquestionable strength. 

{ “Many years ago, at a meeting of 
+ distributors, the advantage of equip- 
j ment rentals was brought to our at- 
tention. Equipment rental, at that 
time, turned out to be very profitable. 
The point I’m trying to make is, that 
'^if we were not a member of a dis- 
tributor’s association, it may have 
been a long time before we found out 
the advantages of the rental of equip- 
ment. 

“It is very possible that many new 
^ markets for amusement devices can be

Irwin Margold 

opened up with the cooperation of dis- 
tributors and manufacturers, if we all 
work together.” Margold said, “we 
still need a great deal of work to 
create a better image with the general 
public, only through associations will 
this be possible.” 

Both Margold and Slifer urge each 
and every manufacturer and distribu- 
tor who is not a member of the asso- 
ciation to please get behind the move- 
ment and join to provide a closer and 
more meaningful understanding, not 
only between the distributors and 
manufacturers, but between ail par- 
ties and allies including operators.

PROFILE ON: JOE MUNVES - 

ON TOP OF THE ARCADE SCENE FOR 55 YEARS! 


“You’re in luck my friend, this great 
big dollar sign says that a great for- 
tune will soon be thine.’’ So says one 
of Grandmother’s Prediction machines. 
Grandmother’s prediction penny ar- 
cade machines are as much a part of 
the legendary arcade business scene as 
is the ball to the great American 
pastime of bowling. 

Not quite as old, but just as legend- 
ary is Joe Munves, partner with 
brother Mike in the Mike Munves Cor- 
poration located at 577 Tenth Avenue 
in New York City. 

The “Arcade Kings,” Mike and Joe 
have been projecting their energies. 


enthusiasm and ideas into the arcade 
industry for 55 fruitful and memory 
filled years. Mike made his debut in 
the business in 1912 and brother Joe 
joined him five years later in 1917. 
The Munves’ first venture were as 
arcade operators of the old Crank 
Machines; their route of operation 
took them from Wooster, Mass, to St. 
Louis, Mo. to Louisville, Ky. 

As the years passed and their knowl- 
edge of the business increased, the 
Munves “establishment” evolved as a 
corporation in a position to offer the 
most substantial advice for the benefit 
of any man interested in investing his

(the money making sound ot music!) 

We're proud to present the new Jupiter 
lOOF . . . great new addition to a fine 
old European family . . . with such added 
features as a 50^ coin chute, and solid 
state 36-watt amplifier. The specially de- 
signed multi-range speaker in concert 
with the solid state amplifier reproduces 
every nuance of sound exactly as it was 
recorded in the studio . . . full range of 
sound from 20 to 40,000 cycles. And with- 
out distortion . . . even at full volume. 

The Jupiter mechanism is simplicity per- 
sonified, a maintenance man’s dream, an 
operator's salvation . . . since less servic- 
ing means higher net per machine. Spare 
parts available throughout the country . . . 
and not only is Jupiter superior mechan- 
ically, but it represents an important 
price break-through.

time and money in a solid, creative 
business. 

The Munves’ have come a long way 
from the days of the horse and buggy, 
when they traveled around the country 
fiilling up their coin bags with pen- 
nies; to the modern era of the Jet 
while their arcade pieces, parts & sup- 
plies and advice reach the far corners 
of the earth. 

In 1951, the Munves Corporation 
got a call from the versatile Walt 
Disney. The result was: “We sold Dis- 
ney enough arcade equipment to equip 
Disneyland,” according to Joe. 

The Munves Corporation is a mem- 
ber of the Tampa and New York Show- 
man’s Cluh and the International As- 
sociation of Amusement parks. 

With the past, present and future 
of the Arcade business in mind, the 
Cash Box Profile ventured down to 
Tenth Avenue and received interesting 
answers to a variety of questions from 
a modest and very affable Joe Munves. 

Joe, we all know you and brother 
Mike have been a prominent part of 
the arcade scene for a great many 
years, when did you enter the busi- 
ness? 

Well, Mike started in 1912 and I 
joined him five years later in 1917. 
We had an arcade route that reached 
from Wooster, Mass, to St. Louis, Mo. 
to Louisville, Kentucky. We traveled 
from state to state with a wagonload 
of the old penny Crank Machines, 
Mutoscope Electric Shock Machines 
and some early Mills machines. 

Over the years the Munves Corpora- 
tion has become, probably, the largest 
supplier of arcade equipment, parts & 
supplies and accessories in the world, 
could you give us an idea of your scope 
of operation? 

It’s true that we are the largest 
supplier of arcade equipment, parts & 
supplies in the world. We have been 
called the “House of a Million Parts” 
and the “Arcade Kings.” 

We are quite proud of our reputa- 
tion and are continually striving to 
uphold and better our reputation. We 
are presently exporting world wide and 
we serve the United States from coast 
to coast and border to border. With 
our broad background of experience 
with arcade operators and the econom- 
ics of the business, many arcade equip- 
ment manufacturers come to us for 
advice and counseling on their prod- 
ucts and the present trends of the 
business. This holds true with the 
foreign manufacturers as well as the 
domestic ones. 

What seems to be the biggest prob- 
lem confronting the modern arcade 
operator? 

I would say their biggest problem 
is the need for new and refreshing 
games. Now, don’t get me wrong, we 
have some great pieces of equipment 
on the market, but some new ideas 
would certainly give the business a big 
boost. With the exception of the long 
established arcade man, there is also 
a definite need for advice and guidance 
among the younger and less experi- 
enced operators. Often times, we will 
get questions from arcade men about 
what machines they should feature, 
what novelty ideas should they install, 
how they can keep the public’s interest 
in their arcade at top peak, and many, 
many other questions that are vital 
and important to their operation. We 
can point with pride to a long list of 
arcades whose problems have been 
simplified. This is not a service which 
we want to be paid for, we feel it is 
our duty to be equipped to answer 
their questions and help solve their 
problems. It’s only through their suc- 
cess that we can uphold our reputation 
as the leading arcade establishment in 
the world. 

Would you advise a young man con- 
templating going into business for 
himself to enter the arcade field? 

Only if we felt he was sincere and 
energetic enough to succeed. Arcades 
are not fly-by-night ventui-es. Once 
they are started correctly, they go on 
and on, bringing steady, substantial 
profits year after year. 



Joe, how do you start an arcade? 

First, you would have to select a j| 
location with potential. The very suc-^ijL 
cess of an arcade depends largely upon 1 
the number of people it attracts. With |f 
this in mind, you must pick a location 'A 
where there is a lot of public traffic. R 
Probably, the best known and most » 
popular arcades are the seashore or jl, 
lakeside amusement centers. These are 1 
generally simple arcades to operate B 
since they cater to every type ofk- 
player. We usually recommend this ill 
type of arcade to the beginner. There . 11 ! 
are also other spots or locations that ||i 
can be just as profitable. While the iJu 
location choice will have a great deal 11] 
to do with the success of an arcade, n 
the operator himself must possess H 
that good old American ingenuity and 11 
enterprising business attitude. '4 K 

What about the equipment, Joe, 1] 
what type would you suggest to begin E 
with? I 

It would take time to name all the || 
machines that make up a good arcade, R 
but I can say a well-equipped arcade I 
should have at least 100 pieces. You jS 
should have some of the “Athletic 11 
Machinery,’ such as. Punching bags, n 
Lifters, Grips and Shockers, etc. Com- jH 
petitive machines include Hockey, . S 
Auto-Test, Horse Races and Soccer. | 
You should have fortune telling ma- | 
chines. The selection is so great it’s 1 
confusing, but a few of the most pop- | 
ular are: Smiling Sam, Ramasees, I 
Magic Heart, Grandmother Predic- 
tions and many, many more. 

You should have several card ven- 
dors for the kids, their a big attraction 
... it gives the kids something to take 
home. You should also have pokerinos, j?t 
photographic machines and a variety ^ 
of amusement and skill machines, 
bowling alleys, pikes peak, all types ■ 
of gun games, base ball games, flash ^ 
machines, pin ball machines and dig- 
gers. There is much more to it than 1 
what I’ve just said, but it would take ^ 
too much time to really go into it. ' 

What are the best profit-making A 
machines for operators of arcades 
today ? 

I think the photographic machines 
are the best. The fortune telling de- j ^ 
vices are next. Then the one that has ' 
been profitable year after year is the I 
old Grandmother Prediction machines. 

This is probably the most legendary 
piece of equipment in the business and , 
one of the most attractive, not only jl 
in appearance but also mechanically. . ^ 
We always advise operators to feature 1 
the photo machine as the center of , 
attraction because this is the machine 
that pays the rent. Close by, the 
Grandmother machine should be lo- 
cated. The advantage here lies in the ’ j 
fact that in the short time that is ■ 
necessary for the films to be developed 
and returned, the arcade patrons look 
to keep themselves amused; and what 
is more attractive than so benign an. _ 
old lady as the Grandmother machine. 

Joe, what, in your opinion, does the 
economic future of the arcade business t" ■ 
look like? 

Well, it’s been getting better since ’V 
1923. 'There are so many untapped 
markets that are being ignored. In

NAMA— World’s Largest Trade 
Show In Progress— Chicago 


CHICAGO — The world’s largest Trade 
Show of Automatic Merchandising has 
been in progress since Saturday (Oct. 
28) at Donovan Hall of the Interna- 
tional Amphitheatre (45th and Hal- 
sted Streets), Chicago. The show will 
continue thru October 31. 

Some 10,000 vending industry ex- 
ecutives (many from foreign coun- 
tries) is there to examine the latest 
in automatic vending machines and 
vendible products. 

Among newsworthy items are rede- 
signed cigarette machine models to 


handle 100-millimeter, king-size, reg- 
ular, and square cigarettes, food and 
general merchandise machines, con- 
venience foods which can be heated 
in microwave ovens, and other auto- 
matic selling devices. The Show covers 
65,000 square feet. 

Business sessions (at the Conrad 
Hilton Hotel) on such subjects as “The 
Potential of Convenience Foods,” 
“Data Processing for Vending,” 
“Route Management and Analysis,” 
“Incentive Compensation for Route- 
men,” and “Upgrading Location Rela- 
tions,” were scheduled. 


TRADE TALK 

WHO SAID IT: Irwin Margold, vice president of Trimount Auto- 
matic Sales, Boston, Mass. 

WHAT DID HE SAY: “Under today’s trying conditions, it is ex- 
tremely important to be in a position to communicate with your 
fellow distributors and with manufacturers. An exchange of informa- 
tion and ideas is invaluable. We feel that it is to everyone’s advan- 
tage to be part and parcel in a fine organization such as the National 
Coin Machine Distributors Association. In order for an association 
of this magnitude to be successful, we must have the moral and 
financial support of every distributor and manufacturer in the indus- 
try. I would like to strongly urge those of you who are not members 
to please get behind this forward movement and JOIN the NCMDA 
Today!”

Munves Profile Cont. 

the past, arcades have been geared 
primarily for the adult trade, slowly, 
over the year, some arcades have been 
set up to amuse the entire family. 
This has helped to some degree, but I 
still feel there are more ways to stim- 
ulate the public’s interest. There is a 
women’s market in the city ... it would 
have to be a little more sophisticated, 
women are always interested in keep- 
ing their weight down and what Isetter 
way and cheaper way than to invest 
a few coins in the exercise machines? 
Along with the women’s section an 
operator could have another section to 
entertain the kids. 

Another market deals with educa- 
tion. There are a few coin-operated 
machines on the market now that 
offers an educational opportunity to 
the player. There should be more . . . 
there is a definite market for them 
and anything educational cannot pos- 
sibly be prohibitive. There are also 
new locations that have been ignored, 
hotels, airports, suburban shopping 
centers, etc. 

But, on the whole, the arcade busi- 
ness is just as progressive and excit- 
ing as it was when I first started. 
We’ve been a part of it for 55 years 
and we’ve watched trends and people 
come and go . . . we’ve won several 
awards for outstanding contributions 
and achievements within the business 
. . . we’re proud and wouldn’t trade 
our association for anything in the 
world.

’Sound The Soule 


Eastern Flashes 

A BATTLE WON— Mel Getlan’s 
victory out in Suffolk County Supreme 
Court week before last restored his 
eight add-a-ball’s and two baseballs 
but brought up the spectre of a Police 
Dept, appeal. According to the new 
Penal Code, “extension of games” is 
prohibitive. Judge Stanislaw said a 
game is not a gambling device un- 
less it “physically ejects a thing of 
value.” No word at press time was 
available on any further moves by 
either party after the decision but it’s 
certainly not in the trade’s interests 
to start shooting out all kinds of 
equipment onto location until a final 
decree is handed down. It’s a funny 
thing when you really consider the 
full application of this “extension” 
clause in the new Code. If you did 
read it by the letter, it would make 
the popular sport of bowling illegal, 
since it gives that tenth inning bonus 
to skillful players. There’s obviously 


a lot of room here for Court definition 
of this extremely elastic statute. 

A DOUBLE CELEBRATION— 
After the recent NYSCMA annual 
meet in the DeWitt Clinton Hotel in 
Albany, Millie McCarthy and the gang 
tripped over to Bob Catlan’s spankling 
new Bilotta Enterprises showrooms 
for refreshments and a look-see at 
Wurlitzer’s new ‘Americana IP con- 
sole. “The new place is beautiful,” 
said Millie, “and the only thing that 
marred the aflPair was the fact that 
Bob Catlan’s mother-in-law had died 
only the very day before. But Bob 
carried on, even with that on his 
mind.” Millie also advised us that a 
concerted membership drive will be 
conducted in months to come to boost 
support for NYSCMA. The drive will 
be conducted on a regional directors’ 
area-to-area basis with Bill Kobler at 
the helm. “We were priviledged to 
have all the key operators of the State 
represented at the meeting,” said 
Millie, “and each has an obligation to

next year.” Millie further revealed 
that the association has retained the 
services of attorney John McKane 
(former counsel for the N.Y. State 
Police Dept.) in order to help out in 
the current Penal Code confusion. 
“John’s experience with the State 
Police will lend immeasurable assist- 
ance in the association’s handling of 
the new measure,” Mrs. McCarthy 
stated. 

HERE AND THERE— Rowe presi- 
dent Jack Harper revealed that an 
“announcement of considerable inter- 
est” was scheduled to be delivered 
Sunday Oct. 29th concerning both 
Rowe Mfg. and the Atherton Division 
of Litton Industries. Facts next week. 
. . . A. D. Palmer, who had three hands 
full last week with Wurlitzer ‘Ameri- 
cana IP festivities and the MOA Show, 
advised us that Sam Varco, his as- 
sistant, has left the company and any 
correspondence concerning Wurlitzer 
promotion activities from the distribu- 
tors should be directed to A. D. Next 
regular dinner meeting of the New 
York State Ops Guild is slated for 
the Hotel Washington, Newburgh, on 
Nov. 15th. Jack Wilson asks all mem- 
bers to be on hand promptly at 7:30 
P.M. . . . Chatted with Sol 'Tabb just 
before showtime and learned he’s quite 
pleased with potential of wholey- 
owned music route throughout West 
Florida. “All the ideas that build up 
our Miami operation will serve us 
very well here,” said Sol. Possibilities 
on expansion into Georgia are not out 
of order either, we hear. 


Milwaukee Mentions 

With memories of the most success- 
ful Music Operators of America con- 
vention still fresh in their minds, Mil- 
waukee operators and distributors re- 
turned to home base this week — and 
the business at hand! Though we’re 
sure everyone got a late start Mon- 
day after remaining in Chicago ’til the 
wee hours in order to catch the star 
studded MOA banquet and show Sun- 
day night! . . . At United, Inc., plans 
are underway for the big move into 
new quarters, to take place witbin 
the next few weeks . . . Welcome home 
to Appleton operator Herb Tunnel and 
his wife, Rae, who just returned from 
Europe! . . . Bob Rondeau of Empire 
in Menominee went out to Union Sales 
in Green Bay last week and almost 
had to referee a coin flipping contest 
between Dick, Eddie, Guff, Larry and 
Bill. It seems the boys are trying to 
determine who’ll go deer hunting first 
— and when! Lot’sa luck, fellas! 


Houston Happenings 

Premiere showing of The Wurlitzer 
Americana II for 1968 was held after- 
noon and evening of Oct. 22, by Gulf 
Coast Distributing Co., in La Fontaine 
ballroom, Warwick hotel, Houston. 
The gala affair was attended by over 
350 guests; music operators, their 
families and employees, from all over 
the Houston trade area.. The famous 
Warwick, “Gourmet Buffet” lunch- 
eon, spiked by cocktails and refresh- 
ments continuously, added zest to 
the affair. Naturally L. C. Butler, head 
of Gulf Coast Distributing, hosted the 
showing. He was ably assisted by A. F. 
Dietrich, Ass’t mgr. of sales, the Wur- 
litzer Company; Karl H. Johnson, an- 
other Wurlitzer Company home office 
official; Lynn Conner Jr., Gulf Coast 
Distributing office in San Antonio. 
Maybe not in a major category but 
certainly an important contribution to 
success of the showing was the efforts 
of these teenagers: Linda Troy, pho- 
tographer, who gave practically every 
family group present a picture of j 
themselves to take home; Kay Shack- 
ford and Marc Troy, in charge of reg- | 


istration and providing each guest 
with an attractively lettered name 
plate; Pam Butler, Kay Shackelford, 
Nancy Ainsworth, Janie Teran, a 
mighty fine and efficient group of 
hostesses. While sales were not even 
mentioned during ceremony, sales rep- 
resentative Ben Wells predicted plenty 
of them for the months ahead. . . . Miss 
Charlotte Nell Kellam and Larry 
Twardowski were married on the eve- 
ning of October twenty first in Our 
Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Hous- 
ton. A large number of friends and 
relatives attended the six o’clock cere- 
mony and remained for the reception 
in parish hall. After honeymoon, the 
couple set up housekeeping in Houston. 
Both bride and groom live in this city. 
The bride’s parents flew from South 
America, where her father is presently 
employed, for the wedding. Larry is a 
long established Seeburg sales repre- 
sentative for H. A. Franz & Company, 
Houston. We extend our own sincerest 
best wishes. . . . Oct. 1 Rogers Met- 
ting. Sales representative for Colum- 
bia Records, and wife Dorothy cele- 
brated their first wedding anniversary. 
Ted N. Dye, owner Sportland Arcade 
on Main St., reported good business 
and has just bought another movie in 
anticipation of even better this winter. 
Few years ago, Ted was a Wurlitzer 
salesman in this territory. . . . Geo. W. 
Bruner is well past the 20 year mile- 
stone as a music operator here. He 
and son Geo. W. Jr. own and operate 
their own company. Music Service. . . .

tributors, Dallas, in city for a one day

Chicago Chatter 

As the activity began to mount at 
the MOA registration booth in the 
Pick-Congress Hotel, it became obvi- 
ous to everyone that this year’s con- 
vention would easily be the most 
heavily attended in the history of the 
association! ... It was especially in- 
teresting to note how many coinmen 
checked into the hotel early this year, 
in order to have all their preparations 
ready in plenty of time for the big 
MOA opening! . . . National Coin Ma- 
chine Exchange’s Joe Schwartz, Mort 
Levinson, et al — with an assist from 
Wurlitzer’s Bob Harding — hosted a 
series of showings of the new Wur- 
litzer “Americana II,” in the firm’s 
showrooms last week. Operators from 
throughout the area turned out in full 
force to view the beautiful new piece. 
In fact, it was shoulder to shoulder 
the first day (23) when even the 
weatherman cooperated by providing 
mild, sunny weather and a tempera- 
ture in the 70’s! ... A reminder: ap- 
plications are in the mail, for accom- 
modations during the upcoming 49th 
annual International Association of 
Amusement Parks (lAPP) convention 
11/26-29 at the Sherman House in 
Chicago ... At Chicago Dynamic In- 
dustries all eyes are focused on the 
new Ace Machine Gun which was re- 
leased to the trade last week . . . 
Local coinbiz was saddened by the 
death (22) of coinvet Andy Hesch, 
president of A & H Entertainers in 
Arlington Heights, 111. To rnost, he 
was not only a business associate but 
a warm, personal friend. Among the 
many from Chicago who attended the 
visitation at Lauterburg and Oehler 
funeral home were Eddie Ginsburg, 
Nate Feinstein, Joe Kline and Mort 
Levinson. Our condolences to the wid- 
ow, Isabel, and Andy’s two fine sons 
Donald and Wayne . . . Everyone at 
World Wide Dist. always looks for- 
ward to MOA time and the resultant 
flow of visitors to the premises — 
and this year was no exception! The 
distrib’s 40,000 plus square feet of 
show space displayed a fine array of 
all types of equipment . . . Irwin Mar- 
gold of Trimount Automatic Sales in 
Boston is spearheading a membership 
drive for the National Coin Machine 
Distributors Association (NCMDA). 
Distributors take heed! . . . Eddie 
Ginsburg and the Atlas Music Co. 
staff welcomed the usual large num- 
ber of visitors who annually pop into 
the showrooms during the MOA con- 
vention . . . Our congratulations to 
Seeburg’s Frank Luppino and his love- 
ly wife, Bjorg, on the recent celebra- 
tion of their fourth wedding anniver- 
sary! . . . Among the many newcom- 
ers at this year’s MOA show was 
Garwin Sales, the newly appointed 
national distributor for the Little LP. 
Prexy Robert Garmisa manned the 
booth. 


California Clippings 

MOA FINISHES UP WITH BIG 
BANQUET . . . The MOA convention 
in Chicago ended Sunday with much 
festivities at annual banquet. From 
what we can gather the convention 
made it very convenient for many 
people along phonorow to go on to 
New York, Miami and other such ex- 
otic places. Some people have all the 
luck. 

CIRCLE INTERNATIONAL CON- 
DUCTING MORE SERVICE 
SCHOOLS . . . According to Dean 
McMurdie (whom we haven’t spoken 
to in ages) John Pentecost, factory 
field representative for Rowe, was 
out on the coast conducting some 
very successful service schools in San 
Diego. We are told that there is a 
new salesman on the staff by the 
name of Eddie Okuda. Eddie, we’re 
told, has been with the Los Angeles 
Times, and done public relations be- 


WELCOME, MOA 


fore joining the Circle organization. 
We talked with Dean just as he was 
getting ready to depart, along with 
Ken Smith, for the MOA and the 
NAMA conventions. They should be 
arriving home any day now. 

MORE HELICOPTER TRAINERS 
DUE TO ARRIVE AT BADGER 
SALES . . . Leo Simone reports to 
us that another shipment of the heli- 
copters should be coming in for a 
landing in the very near future. Leo 
also mentioned that everyone is eager- 
ly awaiting the arrival of the new 
Fischer pool tables. 

BALLY “WIGGLER” GETTING 
GOOD ACTION FROM OPS . . . Jim- 
my Wilkins of Paul A. Laymon tells 
us that the Bally “Wiggler” 4 player 
pin game is one of his better sellers. 
Also hear that used equipment is 
going very well. Jimmy told us a 
rather amusing story. He said that 
he has recently acquired a shipment 
of Southland’s “Quick Draw” from a 
bankrupt company. Included with the 
game is a letter to operators, signed 
by the then, general manager of 
Southland Amusements, one Buddy 
Lurie! 

FROM THE RECORD RACKS . . . 
Jerry Barish of California Music re- 
ports that Smokey Robinson and the 
Miracles are coming on very strong 
with “I Second the Emotion” for the 
Tamla label. The 5 Demention seem 
to have come up with another heavy- 
weight deck “Paper Cup” on Soul 
City. Things are looking quite good 
for the Stone Ponies on Capitol with 
“Different Drum,” which happens to 
be penned by Monkee Mike Nesmith. 
Tommy James and the Shondells are 
coming “Out Of The Blue” on Rou- 
lette. Procul Harum’s first for A&M 
(they had 2 other hits on Deram) 
appears to be a winner, entitled “Hom- 
burg.” 

HERE AND THERE . . . Bob Por- 
tale of Advance Automatic Sales tells 
us that he is eagerly awaiting the 
arrival of Chicago Coin’s new gun 
game, as yet un-named. Also await- 
ing shipments of C. C. “Twinkie” and 
“Fleetwood” bowler. Another ship- 
ment of Gottliebs “Sing Along” should 
be there at any time. Bob, who is 
one of those people we mentioned 
earlier in the column is presently in 
New York, and should be returning 
by the end of the week.
